Tucson Audubon Society.  “Building a future; all about birdhouses” Olya Philips, Tucson Audubon’s Citizen Science Coordinator. Many bird species, you may be surprised to learn, find that there is a shortage of great places to nest. Olya supports more nesting birds and giving every bird a home. The challenges include understanding a species nesting requirements. By becoming the ultimate nest box landlord, Tucson Audubon’s nest box program can teach us what features make a nest box ideal, which species you might attract to your area, and how to troubleshoot the problems that arise.
