First Bird Apartment Ready!

Every Wednesday I volunteer at the Salem Audubon Nature Reserve in West Salem.  In recent weeks I have been involved in the process of constructing artificial nesting cavities in salvaged oak logs.  Lee Slattum, who heads up the volunteers at the Reserve, points out the entrance to the first installed unit. We have six  or seven more to complete and install, and then begins the waiting game to see if any birds find our work acceptable and move in.    


  1. Nice work. Congratualtions! This is the 500th Cascade Ramblings blog I have read!

    1. Congratulations to you Patty! I don't know how you know that, but just for the record, you have 419 more to go to be able to say you have read every one. :)
