7:00 p.m. Scottsdale Farm Birdbox Check (NOTE: start time)
This last “Indoor” meeting of the year is our annual outdoor get together to check on the status and condition of the Birdboxes HNPNC has installed at Scottsdale Farm.
Meet at 7 p.m. in the parking lot at Scotsdale Farm, entrance east off Trafalgar Road, north of 27 Sideroad, Silver Creek. We’ll spend about 2 hours investigating nest boxes the club has put up at Scotsdale in recent years. This project, made possible by the construction efforts of club member Kim Dobson, has seen approximately 50 nest boxes installed at Scotsdale to attract nesting birds. We’ll open them briefly to determine tenancy. Expect tree swallows, house wrens and, with luck, bluebirds.
Public welcome. Please show your support – become a member!
Meetings are held on the second Tuesday of each month from September to June unless otherwise stated. Meetings take place in the hall at St. Alban the Martyr Anglican Church, 537 Main Street, Glen Williams (Georgetown), and start at 7:30 pm.
