Bluebird Restoration Project at Forest Hill Cemetery

This was the second year of a bluebird restoration project led by Shelly Sutley at Forest Hill Cemetery. Boy Scout, James Cerutti, along with several Neighbors, monitored the 10 nest boxes around the perimeter of the cemetery several times a week and recorded the results of each visit in NestWatch, a data collection site for the Cornell Lab of Ornithology. This year 22 bluebirds successfully fledged as well as 5 chickadees and 7 wrens. Just recently, some of those young bluebirds were observed gathering in the area where they fledged, preparing to migrate. We hope to welcome them back next season and continue our efforts to restore the native bluebird population.
