Have a bluebird trail where there are a lot of people walking by (like a golf course, commercial office park, or city/county park)?  This sign may be just what you need to let people know to stay away from and not disturb nesting bluebirds.  This sign was made by a professional sign shop for MBS and is made of sturdy laminated aluminum.  It will hold up for years outside.  There are two pre-drilled holes at the top and bottom for mounting on a wood or metal pole.
