|13 nest boxes in Perrot|
As you wander throughout the park, you may come across birdhouses situated on a post. These are Eastern Bluebird nesting boxes provided by Brice Prairie Conservation Organization. There are currently 13 of them being monitored. Last year these nest boxes produced 73 Bluebirds along with 11 Tree Swallows, 8 Black Capped Chickadees and 12 House Wrens.
|3 and 1 more to come|
Notice how clean they keep their nests.
Bluebirds typically have two to three nests per season. The biggest obstacles to Bluebirds reproduction are weather, predators, and competition among other cavity nesting birds.

Steve has been monitoring the Bluebird population in the park for the past two years.
Thanks Steve for sharing your photos of these beautiful bluebirds. Hopefully we will have three nests this season.
