Dipper Nest Sites & Structures Note

Today I added 2 more nest boxes. One is under the Main St Bridge, (1st photo below) about 20 feet from the south end. I mounted it in the only “easy” place I could. It is strapped to a 4 inch pipe that comes straight down out of the ceiling of the culvert and then it turns 90 degrees for about 8 inches. It can be viewed from the north end in Bluebird Park if one stands or sits next to the creek. It will not be seen easily from this location but we should be able to see birds going up to it if it is used. The only view from the south is down the steep bank on the SE side and at creek level. The other box was mounted under the drive across bridge (#10) photo #2 below. Like most of the other boxes under bridges it can only be viewed from creek level.
Last week I installed 4 other new nest boxes: Bridge#1 by the reservoir, Bridge#4,Bridge#6 replacing the box installed in 2011
and Bridge#8. Eric
