Checking a nest for Nest WatchJoin us at Prairie Ridge and learn how to monitor bird nests in your yard for science! You’ll learn about local birds and their nests while getting hands-on experience observing bird nests in the field. We’ll show you easy ways you can encourage nesting in your yard by providing a next box for Bluebirds and other backyard birds and how to report your findings to scientists.
