New Bluebird Homes at Crowder Park

South Wake Conservationists brought our new, custom-branded bluebird houses to Wake County’s Crowder Park in Apex on Wed., Mar. 29. The team worked with Sarah Goldsmith, Park Technician of Education at the park, to identify and replace eleven old houses that had deteriorated and were no longer usable. Jeff Allen has led the way for SWC with a unique pole and critter guard design that he developed and carefully hand-crafted at his home. He also hand-branded each of the new bluebird boxes. Today’s team of Jeff, John and Beth Kinsella, Chad Chandler, Bill Willis, and Monty Morée removed the old structures and installed the new boxes throughout the park. Several bluebirds were sighted, and they were clearly eyeing their new homes. As a bonus, Sarah found a recently-hatched owl egg, which was amazingly large!
