Bluebirds trying to decide which nest box to use

A bluebird couple started investigating nest boxes in the back yard. They put a small amount of pine straw in two of the boxes one of which is nest camera box #2.  Bluebirds sometimes have trouble making their minds up which nest box to select and may even spend several days vacillating between boxes.  This indecision is usually associated with a young female who has never built a nest before. It will be interesting to see which box they select.
