Build for Birds with DCP

About two thirds of an adult Eastern Bluebird’s diet consists
of insects and other invertebrates.
Bluebird! Few birds entice such excitement as the Eastern Bluebird. Nest boxes provide critical habitat for cavity nesting birds. Join a Darke County Parks Naturalist on Saturday, February 27th at 10am at Shawnee Prairie Preserve to build your own nest box. Depending on the location of the box, you can attract Bluebirds, Chickadees, Tree Swallows, and House Wrens to your property. Participants will spend a brief time discussing the various species that may use the nest box and then get to work constructing their own. All nest box materials will be provided, but participants need to bring their own hammer. There is a $10 material fee for this program, and preregistration is required.

For more information about this or any other Darke County Park program or to register, please call the Nature Center at (937) 548-0165.
