Preparations are in full swing for the arrival of the house wrens! Boxes went up at Lux Arbor on the 8th in anticipation of their arrival. Boxes are great homes for house wrens and chickadees but they're also favorites of mice and flying squirrels. We take down the boxes each winter to help minimize destruction by these mammals.

Box set up at territory C4. The early part of the season is my favorite since it's so easy to see through the vegetation. Good for spotting house wren bands!
