2020 Report

“There were 5-6 successful bluebird broods nesting in our 13 boxes, each yielding 3-5 fledglings. This is the average over the last 14 years and similar to last year, but only half of the peak of 10. We had approximately 2 successful chickadee broods and 2 successful house wren broods, both down slightly from last year. We are delighted that a flying squirrel is continuing to use one of our boxes for nesting. There were two flying squirrels in the box in October. We didn’t see any activity at the old red-tailed hawk nest this year, but we did find a new red-tailed hawk nest in the southeast corner.”
