Bluebird box workshop adds 19 new nesting sites
Ijams annual Bluebird Box Workshop was last Saturday. Peg Beute reports that a total of 19 new nesting sites have been added to the Knox County yards.
Bluebirds, Carolina wrens, chickadees, tree swallows, as well as titmice all use the same size nest box. (Although with titmice, it needs to be 15 feet above the ground.) With the warmer temperatures many of the local cavity nesters are already starting to check out and perhaps even claim territory. And what better territory than a box made at Ijams?
Thank you to all who attended. We still have a few unassembled boxes in case you want to purchase one. Proceeds go to the education department. Contact Peg at 577-4717, ext. 114.
