NEST BOX PROJECT - A 30-YEAR HISTORY

For 31 years, volunteers from Wasatch Audubon Society have collected data, built, placed/replaced, and otherwise maintained from 99-175 bird nesting boxes in the Monte Cristo and Ant Flat areas (near the junction of Rich, Cache, and Weber Counties, Utah). Five species of birds: Tree Swallow, Mountain Bluebird, House Wren, Mountain Chickadee, and Cassin's Finch have nested in these boxes. It is believed that over 8,000 young birds have fledged from the boxes during the course of the project.
The following 30-Year Nest Box Project Report analyzed information for the three most common birds using the boxes: Tree Swallows, Mountain Bluebirds, and House Wrens. The report includes the project's history and findings as well as information on the bird's behavior and biology.
