NestWatcher in the News

Three cheers for NestWatcher Jim Bearden who recently made headlines by creating a bluebird nesting trail in Powder Springs, Georgia. Jim began creating the 2.3 miles of bluebird nesting habitat, complete with 25 nest boxes and multiple feeding stations, in his neighborhood’s community garden in April 2012. In this first full nesting season, the trail has already hosted 111 fledglings, including Eastern Bluebird, Carolina Chickadee, and Carolina Wren!

For inspiration on starting your own bluebird trail, and for updates on Jim’s progress, follow along on the Green Meadows Preserve Bluebird Trail blog. Congratulations, Jim, on recruiting your first tenants, and we wish you many years of success to come.
