Bluebirds Need You Now

Bluebirds need human help to ensure good nesting outcomes.

The blue guys are headed back and ready to raise families.

The Sharon Friends of Conservation have about 30 bluebird houses sited throughout the town. It is very important that these be monitored to maximize the success of bluebird nesting efforts. Monitoring involves visiting assigned (or chosen) houses at least once a week and taking note of activity, eggs and nestlings. Monitors also report on any conditions hazardous tothe birds such as damaged houses or other threats.

The Friends' present monitors find their work adds an interesting and relaxed hour or so to their week. It's an education in itself and a great way get away from it all.

If interested, contact Kurt before March 1.

My son monitored bluebird activity for several months as a community service project. He enjoyed seeing the young ones develop and learned alot in the process. Highly recommended.
