Birdy Hour Speaker Series with Lee Pauser – Part 1 Nineteen Seasons of Nest Box Monitoring
November 5, 2020 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm| Free
Have you ever considered putting up a birdhouse? Do you know what birds might use them, how to care for them, and what information we can get from monitoring nest boxes? As a volunteer, Lee Pauser has been building, installing, and monitoring nest boxes for 19 nesting seasons. In this presentation, he will focus on the 12 species that he has had nest in small (chickadee) and standard (bluebird) nest boxes.
This presentation is Part 1 of a 2-part series; the two presentations combined will include photos and videos of the 18 species of cavity nesting birds that have graced his nest boxes. His efforts have resulted in 15,545 birds fledging, of which 6,151 are Western Bluebirds.

Lee is a member of the California Bluebird Recovery Program (CBRP), Santa Clara Valley Audubon Society (SCVAS) and North American Bluebird Society (NABS). Data is collected during the nesting season and provided to the Cavity Nesters Recovery Program (CNRP) and Cornell Lab of Ornithology’s NestWatch Program. The latter makes detailed information available for scientific research.
