Bird Box Installation & Field Monitoring


Many bird species are endangered due to loss of habitat.     By installing bird boxes in strategic locations increases the chance of nesting and rearing the young.


Constant monitoring and protecting their habitat must accompany this activity to ensure that food sources and the environment are not taken away at the very strategic time of chick rearing.


The primary concern has been the rapid loss of blue birds and their habitat


Here below are the results of efforts in the Georgetown Area to build and maintain blue bird boxes and habitats.
