We Have More Than 80 Bird Boxes!

February 05, 2016 at 2:58 PM

We have over 80 bird boxes scattered through the orchard!

These are largely colonized in the summer by non-berry eating species which helps us reduce the amount of bird damage! We have set up 4 large kestrel boxes but so far, we have attracted northern flicker woodpeckers. We would love to see such birds as sawet owls and or kestrels move in. These birds are all non-berry eaters.

We are also creating winter trails in the orchard so the coyotes can help keep the mice and rabbits under control. Left unchecked, these critters will destroy trees.
