Come tour the tree swallow and bluebird nestboxes at Long Lake Park, with Dustin Neild, who installed this trail in 2015. Since that time, the boxes have been highly successful every year and this walk takes place at the peak of nesting activity, so we’re sure to see nests, eggs, hatchlings and nestlings at almost every stage of development while also learning about proper nestbox sites, installation, monitoring and management techniques. No dogs, please, as we will be in sensitive habitat during nesting season. Previously this walk has also been highlighted by encounters with fawns, barred owlets, ravens, cedar waxwing, indigo bunting, and more.
Dustin has some surprises in store for the 2019 walk!
Bring bincolulars and/or camera. No dogs, please, as we will be in sensitive habitat during nesting season.
