Checking Bluebird Boxes

blue I’ve enjoyed walking a route and checking bluebird nest boxes in El Dorado Park for the past several years.  This year, I was fortunate enough to be able to share the experience with a handful of community members.  Baby bluebirds seem like a
potentially  promising mechanism to connect the next generation to the wonders of nature.  We put the boxes up in late February and checked them on May 14.  Eggs, newly hatched babies, fledglings, and…. two boxes with house wrens!

This season, there’s only three of us walking routes and we have many boxes sitting idle in a garage that never got placed.  If you think you might be interested in this sort of activity for next year, shoot us an email and we’ll hook you up!

P.S. Sorry Michael, this was the best picture that I had.

    Do you believe this is a project my Cub Scouts could do (with me of course). Next year they will be 3rd graders, perhaps even another Den could do this too.

    Thank you Jeff. If we could talk about what it entails we could probably rule it in or out for our scouts. I am assuming you are able to get my email from this site. If not I’ll check back for a reply.
