We thought it would be nice to tweet out to everyone the results of the annual LMWA/FOLM Nest Box Maintenance Day results. We extend our sincere appreciation to all the volunteers who helped make the day such a success. We could not do it without you! All 13 routes have been cleaned and are ready for the 2023 nesters.
- 233 boxes were cleaned and inventoried
- 68% of the nest boxes were used
- 37% of the nest boxes fledged swallows
- 4% of the nest boxes fledged wrens
- 1% of the nest boxes fledged chickadees
- 1% of the nest boxes provided critical habitat for mice, chipmunks, or squirrels. More than a handful did the same for wasps.
- Many nest had unhatched eggs.
