AZURE BLUEBIRD NEST BOXES
One of the 17 bluebird nest boxes made by Tucson Audubon volunteers and placed on the Keif-Joshua and Callaghan vineyard's properties. I am monitoring these boxes once a month along with other volunteers to ensure weekly monitoring in determining any use by Azure Bluebirds.
There are numerous other private properties - most are vineyards - in the Sonoita Arizona area that have allowed many bluebird nest boxes. All are being monitored weekly by volunteers. The generosity of these property owners is making a difference in the survival of this beautiful native bird.
It was a rare cloudy, cold, windy, and moist day for monitoring yesterday in Sonoita.
