2023 Bluebird Results Are In!
Since 2015, over 500 bluebirds have been fledged by APF.
Here is our 2023 Bluebird Trail Report which we submitted to the Bluebird Association of Wisconsin.
24 Bluebird nest boxes
10 boxes used by bluebirds
71 Bluebird eggs laid
48 Bluebirds hatched
48 Bluebirds fledged
10 Tree Swallows fledged
0 Chickadees fledged
63 House Wrens fledged
9 boxes used by House Sparrows.
APF volunteers cleaned out these houses every week when house sparrow nests were found. Some success for Bluebirds nesting occured after house sparrows were encouraged to find other nests.
Special thanks go out to Cynthia Carlson who monitored half of our houses for the second year. Thank you Cynthia!
Special thanks go out to Sue Eagle who leads the project, plans activities, and maintains our houses.Thank you Sue!
Thank you, everyone, for your membership and interest in our birds.
