Eastern Bluebirds, Tree Swallows, House Wrens, and Chickadees are all species that use nest boxes. Bill Stovall, who has been making bird houses for over 25 years, will show you how to construct a nest box that you can take home. Learn about the species of birds who use nest boxes and how to become a citizen scientist by contributing data to the NestWatch website, where researchers use the information contributed to monitor the condition of breeding bird populations.
