By John Scholtz
In this talk the speaker will cover all the general aspects of Bluebirds, including history, the different species, nesting cycle, habitat, predators and competitors. Helping bluebirds by providing nest boxes, establishing a trail and its management will also be discussed in detail.
John has served as Walworth County Bluebird coordinator for BRAW (Bluebird Restoration Association of Wisconsin) for the past three years. He has been actively monitoring a bluebird trail of 18 nest boxes in the Elkhorn and Lake Geneva area for over 5 years. He connects with other Bluebirders in Walworth County and reports data to BRAW. John builds many of his own nest boxes for use on his trail, which have successfully fledged over 100 Bluebirds in Walworth County. Check out the BRAW website at https://www.braw.org/
There will be a fun 5 question Bluebird quiz at the end. John will be handing out 5 free nest boxes to attendees who get the answers.
The event is free and open to the public.
