Keeping chickadees out


My bluebirds have spent a week making a nest that looks ready for eggs. Now a chickadee is trying to take it over. Any suggestions for keeping them out?

Let them sort it out. A bluebird will almost always win out against a chickadee. Besides, as a native bird, a chickadee is protected.
