The Southern Interior Bluebird Trail Society creates nesting habitat for cavity nesting birds with an emphasis on Mountain and Western Bluebirds. They educate the public to the plight of secondary cavity nesters due to human destruction of habitat and introduction of non-native bird species. Its’ members monitor and care for over 5,000 nest boxes throughout the province and have sponsored B.C.’s first Transcontinental Bluebird Trail; part of the North American Bluebird Society’s non-linear trail system.
I am working with a client, who lives in Coldstream, adjacent to Kalamalka Lake Provincial Park. We have been hired to design and install habitat for birds. Currently their property consists of a small Ponderosa stand, emergent shrubland, and native grassland. The client has two birdhouses of sentimental value, which they would like installed. I know that the cavity size, entrance size, height, and location are all important considerations. What birds should we be targeting, and what specifics do they require to provide them a successful nest? Any information that you can provide would be greatly appreciated.
