I recall Shirley F. and I checking bluebird houses in the winter 10 years or 
more ago.
We were checking for winter roosting evidence.  In one box we found 10 or 
more
dead Eastern Bluebirds after an ice storm such as this one.
Those bluebirds didn't have a thing in their crop / esophagus (permit # 
21117).
The implication was they starved to death before they froze.  Don't know, of 
course.

Good birding,  Larry H.  Joplin (Jasper County) MO.
