Annual Report II for 2013
Over 37,000 songbirds were fledged in the 2013 Season
by Kent Hall

This decrease of 14,001 fledged songbirds was due mainly to a decrease of 12,618 bluebirds fledged but chickadee fledglings decreased by 374 and Tree Swallow fledglings decreased by 1,231, also. HOWR’s increased by 346 fledglings. Read more...
