Building a Nesting Box with Jim Anderson ▶ (with video)

Make one for pygmy owls. Make one for another bird. But in any case, spend some time with our resident naturalist Jim Anderson.

Around these parts, he's known to spin a yarn that wraps around the block. Now, Naturalist Jim Anderson and longtime Source Weekly contributor sits down with us to talk about one of his favorite subjects: Birds—and how to help care for them.

Source videographer Darris Hurst met with Anderson at his home—social-distancing-approved style—to walk through the steps for making a good nesting box for pygmy owls.


And in case you missed it, here's another look at Anderson's Feb. '20 story, "Homes for Birds and Bats," linked here:
