Mariton: Bluebird News
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).
