Since we changed the name of our organization to honor our founder the late Len Anderson, we had to make a few changes to our site. Of course, that meant we also had to change our logo. I was able to apply the changes to our old logo without modifying the theme. This new logo […]
It has been an interesting year for our little group of Bluebird lovers. There was lots of activity at our boxes this year. Here are the quick stats of 2018: We were lucky to have 15 Bluebird nesting attempts. Eight of those attempts resulted in at least one Bluebird fledgling. The total number of Bluebirds […]
Well, after collecting a lot of data, we can show off some of our numbers. Our feathered friends came out early this year, and there have been many successful nest attempts. A successful attempt is when at least one bird fledges from the nest. Of course, we hope for more. We currently monitor 16 Bluebird […]

At the moment, all active nests are from House Wrens, but we still have vacancy for any Bluebirds that want to give it one more shot. Eastern Bluebirds typically have more than one successful brood per year. Here are […]
The month is almost over and we have been seeing some good results from our monitoring. Like a lot of areas in the country, we have been dealing with a good amount of rain. Rain brings a few problems that we have to deal with, namely Blowflies. The adults lay eggs in the nest boxes […]
