For the Love of Bluebirds
Saturday, January 13th, 11:00am - 12:30pm
Bluebird numbers were once in decline but thanks to the efforts of conservation minded individuals and organizations their numbers have increased. Unfortunately, some Bluebird lovers think they are doing a good deed by simply putting up a nest box in their back yard. That is not the case and often can do more harm than good.

In this session we will cover the following:
Bluebirds 101 – What you should know about Bluebirds and other cavity nesters
