AWA Tuesday Talk: Pussy Willows and Flashes of Blue: Spring Has Arrived!

March 24, 2010 - 1:00am

Bluebird lovers who build and maintain nesting boxes are contributing enormously to the conservation of this beautiful bird species. Coupled with a very active program to band these birds, we are becoming increasingly informed about their nesting habits and distribution througout southern Alberta.  Marijke Jalink-Wijbrans and Don Stiles will team up to describe the joys, heartbreaks and science of bluebird conservation.

Marijke Jalink-Wijbrans came to Canada from the Netherlands in 1965 and, along with her husband, has monitored a bluebird trail since 1988.  Don Stiles has been active with Nature Calgary since 1976, monitors his own trail and coordinates other bluebird trails in the Calgary area.
