Hi Tweets,
WDFW has 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!!! Yes...FREE!!!!
Voluntary donations accepted if one so desires.

Please come to the REGION 4 MILL CREEK office, Monday through Friday between 8 am to 5 pm, to peruse.
Address is:
16018 Mill Creek Blvd.
Mill Creek, WA 98012

About 30 minutes north of Seattle.
I think I mentioned...FREE...!!!!!!!
Any voluntary donations would go towards the WDFW Backyard Wildlife Sanctuary and strictly the WDFW non-game fund for non-game management and efforts only - per law.
We have mostly chickadee/wren boxes (quite a few of these), flicker, downy, a few hairy, violet-green swallow (also used by chickadee/wren), small owl, and robin/mourning dove/barn swallow/Say's phoebe platform structures. Get them out and up now...cavity nesters are pushing forward with their annual efforts!
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.

Please pass this email on to anyone off list.

Good birding,
Chris
