Monitoring Our Nest Boxes

As you may have recently noticed, all ten of our newly constructed, bird nesting boxes have been strategically placed throughout the course property. Our birdhouses were placed in a variety of locations to see which ones are most successful. To help keep the nest dry, each birdhouse faces southeast, away from the prevailing winds. 

It is very important to monitor these nesting boxes on a regular basis to help ensure nesting success; therefore, we would like to include the membership with this project. We are seeking a small group of interested people to check the houses every week or two.  If you would be interested in helping us out, please contact superintendent John Temme.
