Bluebird Nest Box Walk at Mashomack Preserve with Bill Zitek

June 13, 2015 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm

We will meet at the Visitors Center at Mashomack Preserve, and will walk out to the Red Trail to North and South Fields where Dr. Zitek shall explain the Nest Box Project — natural history, banding, cameras and results. We will open nest boxes and should be able to see Eastern Bluebird and Tree Swallow eggs and nestlings.  If needed, Dr. Zitek will be able to transport in his truck those with difficulty walking to the meadows.
