YOU Can Help Cavity Nesting Birds
Who: Participants of all ages are welcome; minors under 18 require a signed waiver and those under 14 require an accompanying adult.
What: Many local bird species are in decline, but those that nest in cavities have been particularly hard hit by the loss of suitable habitat as our valley has become increasingly urbanized. But YOU can help. Mike Azevedo, of the Santa Clara Valley Audubon Society’s Cavity Nester Recovery Program, will tell you how in this presentation of the whys and hows of nest box design, placement, and monitoring. You can become a part of the formal monitoring program or simply place a nest box or two in your yard and enjoy Bluebirds, Tree Swallows, Chickadees and other cavity nesting birds in your own backyard habitat. This presentation is a follow up to the Bird Box Hike we held earlier this year and is intended to give you the practical information you need to help reverse the decline of cavity nesters in our area. Bird boxes will be available for purchase.
When: Thursday, November 1, 7:00 - 8:30 pm
Where: McClellan Ranch Preserve Conference Room, 22221 McClellan Road in Cupertino.
Minors under 18 must bring a waiver form signed by a parent.
