Making Mountain Bluebirds Happy, part of the Wyoming Community Bank Speakers Series is from 7-8 p.m. at the Dennison Lodge. Jon Mobeck and Kate Gersh from the Jackson Hole Wildlife Foundation will talk about their Mountain Bluebird Nestbox Project. With the help of volunteers, JHWF monitors 104 mountain bluebird nestboxes along the perimeter of the National Elk Refuge every year, once per week from April through July. Some of the information collected includes dates, number of eggs laid, eggs hatched and birds fledged. This information is entered into the Nature Mapping Jackson Hole database and given to the North American Bluebird Society and Cornell Lab of Ornithology. Data gathered by citizen scientists during nestbox monitoring is needed to increase the understanding of the breeding success of the mountain bluebird, especially in the areas of dramatic habitat loss.
