July 16, 2014

Trish O'Kane makes sure three Bluebird boxes installed along Warner Pond near the Tin Can Shelter are sturdy and ready for use next year.  The boxes may also attract Bluebirds, Tree Swallows, House Wrens and Black-capped Chicadees making 2nd or 3rd nests this year. This year O'Kane, Paul Noeldner, Tim Nelson and Jonathan Santanna have recorded successful Bluebird families this year.

Nearby blooming prairie areas and shoreline native plantings are full of insects enjoyed by nesting birds including a Sandhill Crane family. Several species of Swallow complete the picture for nature lovers as they swoop low over grassy areas.
