Eastern Bluebird Nest Box Volunteer Monitoring Chair by Deirdra Wallin

Nest boxes provide cavity nesting birds, including Eastern Bluebirds, Wood Ducks and Purple Martins a place to have their young. Nest boxes have positively contributed to the increase of these birds that were previously experiencing a decline. Nest boxes at Deer Pond Farm include: eight Eastern Bluebird boxes, four Wood Duck boxes and twenty-four Purple Martin gourds. our nest boxes are monitored and maintained. The Bluebird and Wood Duck boxes stay up year round, while the Purple Martin gourds are taken down for the winter.
