Hi Tweets,
WDFW had a very kind gentleman, once again, donate a number of bird nesting boxes that are up for grabs; first come first serve.
These are FREE!!! A voluntary donation would be welcome if one so desires.

Please come to the REGION 4 MILL CREEK office between 8 am to 5 pm to peruse.
Address is:
16018 Mill Creek Blvd.
Mill Creek, WA 98012
About 30 minutes north of Seattle.

Again - these are FREE to the public. Any voluntary donations would go to the WDFW Backyard Wildlife Sanctuary and strictly the WDFW non-game fund for non-game management and efforts only.

We have mostly chickadee/wren boxes (quite a few of these), flicker, downy, a few hairy, violet-green swallow (also used by chickadee/wren), and robin/mourning dove/barn swallow/Say's phoebe platform structures. Put them up now...let them weather a bit over the winter!
WDFW asks that these boxes not be resold as they are free from a kind donation to the state and therefore citizenry of WA- but please do gift them to your friends and family!
Please maintain them properly and keep an eye out to manage against non-target species such as starlings or house sparrows. Please don't put a box up that is a starling or house sparrow magnet in areas where it is known these birds are around.
Lots of guidance out there both on our website below, at your local Audubon chapter, or local bird and wildlife watching shop.

Good birding and Happy 2016,
Chris
