Placing a next box in your yard, garden spot, or communal outdoor space is an excellent way to provide birds a safe place to raise their young, and offers you a glimpse into bird nesting behavior. During this class we will discuss “why a box?” how to best deploy your box, and what to watch for when the birds show up. We will also discuss the essential seasonal tasks of caring for and cleaning your nest box.
Each participant will then construct a next box, suitable for small songbird species (chickadee, wren), using provided premeasured and precut materials. No power tools will be used during class. Participants are welcome to bring their own materials if they have a particular design in mind, though this certainly is not expected or required. Children are welcome as long as they are accompanied by an adult, have registered for the class, and are able to manage the entire two-hour session. Appropriate for ALL levels of birders.
