These four bird boxes were designed for small cavity-nesters such as chickadees, nuthatches, and wrens. They were assembled in the spring of 2005 by participants in a Friends of Fresh Pond Reservation program, and have been put up in various sites around the Reservation. We put the boxes up in late fall before the ground freezes so that they are in place when the birds begin looking for nesting sites in February and March. After nesting season ends in August, we take them down, wash and sanitize them, and store them. Residents so far have included house wrens and tree swallows.
