With permission from the Lenawee County Parks we were able to replace the existing dilapidated boxes with new at Bicentennial Park near Tipton, MI.

This is one of four new houses installed at the park on Sunday. These house will be checked weekly for Bluebird activity. Nesting data will be collected and submitted to Cornell Lab of Ornithology’s “Nestwatch” website.
