Terrific resource for helping our local birds to succeed.
Many of us have back yards with all the resources birds need to reproduce except for good nesting substrate. Nestwatch offers free nest-box plans - most of which can be constructed from a single fence board with simple tools! Even better, the site offers regional insights and great tips on placement and predator control. You can even contribute data for conservation efforts on some of our common but declining breeding birds. Give it a look!
