Bluebirds and Nest Box Monitoring: Become a Citizen Scientist

March 12, 2017 @ 2:00 pm - 3:30 pm


$10 per box for non-members/$5 per box for Friends of Goodwin
and CFPA members

Get an introduction to the beloved bluebirds with Master Naturalist graduate Jim Bancroft who monitored Goodwin’s bluebird trail and is also monitoring bluebird and American kestrel nest boxes in Glastonbury.

Bluebird populations were on the decline since the late 1800s but are now making a comeback. This is partially due to bluebird boxes that have been built and set up by people!

Nest box monitoring is a rewarding way to learn more about birds and contribute to scientific knowledge. At the beginning of this program, you will learn about the bluebird nest boxes at Goodwin and the bird species that use these boxes. You will also learn how to monitor nest boxes in your own neighborhood and how and why to report your nest box sightings. You will have an opportunity to build your own bluebird nest box to take home and enjoy!  If you’re interested, following the program, we’ll visit Goodwin’s bluebird nest boxes to clean and prepare them for the coming breeding season.
