Songbird, Bat, and Owl Boxes: Vineyard Management with an Eye toward Wildlife
May/June 2008 California Country magazine
By Kate Campbell
Take a page from California farmers and increase the number of songbirds, owls and bats that call your property home. These beautiful—and beneficial—creatures can be encouraged to move in with the right conditions. A handy new guide from the University of California includes ideas for installing nesting boxes and explains in clear language the biology and habitat requirement of the various species. Best of all, the booklet explains how to build and install these structures. $15 in softcover.
