Tree Sparrows: Great time of year to get new Nest Boxes up! (1 Viewer)

A few of my pairs of Tree Sparrows have been busy, over the past few weeks, making new winter roost nests in their boxes, following me cleaning them out in mid September.

I even had two pairs fighting over one box, so clearly it was time I put up a few new boxes.

This week I put up 6 new posts, made 6 new Tree Sparrow nest boxes & finally put the boxes up today.

Cheers,
Dick

A couple of photos of the cozy, feather-lined winter nests for roosting in, my Tree Sparrows have been making over the past few weeks.
