Some nestboxes need more attention than others, and we are so lucky to have amazing board members who are not afraid to roll up their sleeves and help out. And what about that beautiful creature Maureen was able to capture during the clean-up too!
Judy and Maureen have been freshening up the Visitor Center and we can't wait until May long weekend for everyone to see!
A Richardson's ground squirrel (commonly known as gopher) popped out of its den at the site on March 3.
Albert and Ellie have not been seen at the nest so far this year. The owls may still nest, since great horned owls in the area have started nesting a bit later than other years. In 2018, the owls nested in a location nearby, so it's possible they have nested elsewhere again this year. Visit our YouTube channel to watch the livestream: Ellis Bird Farm - YouTube.
