Saving the Western Bluebird

According to the California Bluebird Recovery Program, (CBRP), newsletter, “Bluebirds Fly” Vol. 25, No. 1, Winter 2019, Lee Pauser was the top producer of 2018 out of 13 California counties.  He was responsible for the fledging of 1,850 birds (fledge means the bird has acquired the feathers necessary for flight or independent activity), and within that total he was responsible for the fledging of 701 Western Bluebirds.  Pretty impressive results!

Over the years, bluebirds have lived and reproduced in California. However, due to development in rural areas, much of their preferred habitat has been destroyed.

Lee’s primary activities are around birding.  However, he still finds time to lend a hand with the different Martin-Fontana Parks Association projects and taking care of the Guadalupe Oak Grove Park.    He is primarily involved in Owl, Duck and hawk/falcon nesting boxes.

When you see Lee, tell him ‘well done’!

    Note: Per Lee Pauser, Rich Wright is also listed as having fledged 238 Western Bluebirds. He and his dad Steve have several trails that include both TJM and JF parks. Rich should be given some attention too.
