Nest Box Competitors & Invasive Species Video

Mondays with Martha #147 - Nest Box Competitors & Invasive Species

For the third installment of Nest Box Basics, I discuss both native nest box competitors like house wrens and flying squirrels as well as the invasive species house/English sparrows and European starlings. I review what can legally be done to promote your target nest box species in the context of the Migratory Bird Treaty Act and other state laws, including passive and active management strategies.
