90 Nest Boxes for Nuthatches Kicks Off in 2015

Make a Little Room for the Brown-headed Nuthatch


The Brown-headed Nuthatch has been steadily declining in Georgia and recognized as a climate endangered species by the National Audubon Society. This cute and charismatic passerine is a southeastern specialty. The Georgia Audubon Council will make a little room for the Brown-headed Nuthatch by installing nest boxes to help offset the loss of nesting habitat in 2015.
