May 26th,2019, was the beginning of our Gelert Rd Bluebird nesting box trail. Don Kerr and Gord Sheehan put up the first two boxes at the Killara Station farm. That is a perfect spot to have them and they were delighted to participate.

Don has previously installed 6 at his place and 6 at the Walkabout farm on Spring Valley Rd.

So we now have 14 new boxes up in Haliburton. Many thanks to all who helped. We should be proud.

 

The effort continues as we will need volunteers to do the monitoring of these nests and the installation of the remaining 6 boxes.
