Volunteers have completed another year of successful bird nesting recruitment at Lake Red Rock. Over 468 hours were donated toward cleaning, maintaining, and managing 116 eastern bluebird boxes and 3 purple martin houses. Throughout the spring and summer, volunteers recorded the species, counted eggs, banded chicks, and counted a total of 291 chicks fledged. Recruitment included bluebirds, chickadees, tree swallows, and purple martins. Overall numbers were fairly consistent with recent trends with exception of one purple martin house being overrun by non-native House Sparrows.
