Eastern Bluebirds, Tree Swallows, House Wrens, and Chickadees are all species that utilize nest boxes. Please join Bill Stovall of Delton, MI who has been making bird houses for over 30 years, in constructing a nest box to take home and learning about the species of birds who use them and need them.
