Bluebird Update: Successful Seventh Bluebird Trail

07-06-16 0 By: Krista Lambrecht

WOW! The addition of Eau Claire’s seventh Bluebird Trail located at Phillips Medisize is taking us to new heights! This Bluebird Trail was installed late in the season (June 1st). Normally a trail is installed late March in order to encourage songbirds’ first brood of babies. ┬áSince this trail was installed mid season, our incoming results are even better than we could have imagined.

Through the next few months, Phillips Medisize employees will be learning and participating in the monitoring process so they too can become Citizen Scientists.
