Mariton: Bluebird News

May 7, 2015

by Tim Burris, Preserve Manager

It has been so busy playing catch up this spring that Dan Barringer and I haven’t had time to post as much as we would like.   Suffice it to say that wildflowers are beautiful, and new ones are blooming each week at NLT’s preserves.  The neo-tropical bird migration has been awesome and I am looking forward to Mariton’s census on Saturday.

And yes, there is nesting activity in the nest boxes at Mariton.  This Bluebird nest has 5 eggs.  Tree Swallows have moved into two other boxes, and I think a Tufted Titmouse is nesting.  (Time will tell, Chickadee nests look very similar).
