Funky Friday...We’ve Gone to the Birds
Yes, Larry and I truly have gone to the birds.
To clarify...we have been lucky to have bluebirds who nested in our backyard last year. Since then, Larry has removed, refurbished, and replaced 9 bluebird boxes at the two parks/preserves where we walk.
After meeting with a representative from Kickerillo-Mischer Preserve where 5 of the Bluebird boxes are, we’ve become certified to monitor these boxes. It’s all voluntary and all we have to do is monitor the boxes and maintain records of their progress.
The program, called NestWatch is part of the Cornell Lab of Ornithology if you would like to learn more about this program.
We’ll keep you updated.
