Participants will build bluebird houses and learn about the eastern bluebird. Bluebirds are cavity nesters that prefer open fields and need to compete with other cavity nesters, such as tree swallows, for suitable habitat. The male will show the female several possible locations to raise their young, before she chooses one. To provide for both species, it is suggested to install 2 boxes in close proximity.
With Dave Turan (Michael Kudish Natural History Preserve).
$10 plus materials cost of $12 per nest box. Full kits will be provided.
Register for this event and others offered by Mountain Top Arboretum HERE.
