Should you clean out a bird house after they are done using it?

I clean my birdhouses and nesting boxes every fall so that the new inhabitants can build their own little nests. My Doves use nests left by others and these are usually in a tree or, currently, on the power line that runs to the house.

No, because another bird can come in and use the same nesting.

it is unhealthy so you should often clean the cage.

A bird bath should be cleaned based on the amount of usage. If your bird bath is frequently used, then you should clean it every week or so. If it isn't, then it should be cleaned at least monthly.

you should clean it out so that another bird will be able to nest in the next year and you will have the experience of getting to watch them again.

Clean them once the bluebird abandons the nest; usually after the babies leave the nest. If a sparrow or other bird starts making a nest over the current bluebird nest remove the materials of the nest in process. Do not clean out the bluebird house if the bluebird is still using the nest.
