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.
Amy Hodson joined them that day and provided the photo of the group hard at work installing the nesting boxes. Adam and Sara did a lot of research in advance of the installation. The time and effort reaching out to many members of the birding community helped make this project happen.
Our congratulations to Adam, Sara, and Carole on a job well done!
