WLS 2022: Being a Good Bluebird Box Landlord (Jan. 30)
Join us as we look at the ways that you can help Eastern bluebirds and other native cavity nesters remain numerous in our communities. This program explores proper nest box construction and placement for Eastern bluebirds. We will also discuss nest box predators, other birds that will use your boxes, how to care for the boxes and nesting behavior and timetables.
