Nests & Nest Boxes
Today your challenge is to find a bird nest and observe it! Can you find any of these nest boxes at some of our MetroParks locations? Compare them to the bird nests you might find in your yard. Post a picture of you findings to share what you learned with the rest of us birders!
Please remember, the most important part about observing our wildlife is to respect them and give them space! In the park, always stay on the trail to do your observations. At home, always watch from a safe distance. This way, the birds will continue to act normally, and you can continue to observe their natural behaviors!
We offer a periodic newsletter with information about upcoming events and programs.
