Community Science: Nest Box Monitoring with NAP

April 15 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm

Introducing: Nest Box Monitoring! This new Community Science program monitors bird nest boxes in Ann Arbor parks. Volunteers keep track of which species are nesting in park boxes, and check on the health of the nest and nestlings. Nest box monitors also help keep invasive House Sparrows from breeding in the parks by removing House Sparrow nests and possibly their eggs. Monitoring sites require walking on unpaved trails, going off trail, and some sites only offer street parking. Training is provided on nest identification, cavity nesting birds like Bluebirds, how NAP monitors nest boxes, and how to remove House Sparrow nests if necessary. Register on VolunteerHub at https://nap.a2gov.org/NestBoxTraining2023, for more information contact NAPBirds@a2gov.org.
