Nest boxes can be an important conservation tool for supporting species populations in southeast Arizona. Over the last year, Tucson Audubon has been experimenting with the use of nest boxes for various species. In an interactive presentation, you will learn an experimental approach to determining the preferences of multiple species of cavity nesting birds. Discussions will include temperature concerns, nest box placement, nest box design. Jonathan will describe these projects and their outcomes, including the findings of recent experiments regarding temperature inside nest boxes in the Sonoran Desert. He will also introduce Tucson Audubon's vision for the "Win-Win for Azure Bluebirds and Arizona Vineyards" nest box project.
