We currently have six bluebird nest boxes here at the Museum. All of the boxes were donated by Ken Kernodle and friends back in March of 2010 with the addition of two new boxes installed this year.
The boxes were checked as to their current occupancy on April 3 & 4 and were all found to contain nests. Four of the boxes contained bluebird nests with four to five eggs each, one box contained a Carolina Chickadee nest with four eggs, and one had a paper wasp nest inside. I removed the wasp nest and hope to have birds moving in soon.
Thanks to Ranger Kristin and Scouts Phoebe and Ellie for their help with the nest box inspections, couldn’t have done it without you!!
