Walk Leader: Crystal Possehl, South Fork Natural History Museum (SoFo) Nature Educator.
The field behind the museum is a home to many insects, which makes it the perfect home for Eastern Bluebirds who happily use fabricated nest boxes in place of tree cavities, which are difficult to find due to land development. The telescopes on the upper deck of the museum provide a noninvasive way of watching these sky-blue birds as they go to and from the nest boxes. But what is going on inside the nest box? Crystal will read an engaging story of how a bluebird couple builds its nest, feed its young, and gets the young ready for the upcoming winter. After the story, children will create their own bluebird nest-with-chicks, and have an opportunity to take a nature walk out into the field to observe the bluebirds.
Reservations are required for all events. Participants must call (631) 537-9735 for reservations and information about meeting places.
