My Nest Box Checker

All spring and summer Julie maintains our bluebird trail (about 12 boxes) and we enjoy decent reproductive success amoung our feathered tenants. Our all-time high is 72 fledglings for a breeding season--not bad for just a dozen boxes in our wooded habitat.

Phoebe (our nine-year-old daughter) loves to check the nest boxes, especially when the babies are getting feathered and cute. In this image, she's helping out on a early-spring box-checking run in our meadow.
