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

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:
