Join us to learn more about the SFAS Bluebird Nest Box Monitoring Project.
Kate Brennan will share a little history of the project and
talk about why monitoring is a fun and rewarding form of Citizen Science.
A number of our “resident” summer birds are cavity nesters — that is, they
only build their nests in cavities. Historically these cavities were natural holes in
trees, or holes drilled by woodpeckers. But because of several invasive bird
species and general habitat loss, more and more of our cavity nesters, including
our Western Bluebirds, seem willing to use human-made nest boxes.
