Greenfield Birders Install Nesting Boxes

In March the Greenfield Birders installed 16 bird houses at Beckenholdt Park, one of their favorite local parks in Greenfield, Indiana. Adam and Sara Wilson, along with Carole Blaser, were the proud recipients of grant money funded by the National Audubon Society and the Amos Butler Audubon Society to purchase, construct, and install these 16 birdhouses. Their hope is that the newly provided housing will replace some of the lost habitat for cavity nesters such as Eastern Bluebirds and Tree Swallows.

Thank you to the fun group of birders that joined us for today's field trip to "The Burn" in search of Smith's Longspurs! We saw 24 species, including over 100 Smith's Longspurs! It was a wonderful day to be out in the field with great birds and birders.
