Bird sightings are improving again up here as well! So good to see them returning. O/\
Although, there are still quite a few species you got down there that I never heard of...
Great outing again, nan. O0

but the big news... is we meet the "fauna's police", control us... that is normal and proposed to show where Beavers have their house, entrance, chimneys etc... O/\ O/\ O/\

Because Nan's Beavers have chopped all the old trees with their nesting holes in down. =O: =O: =O:

Birds that nest in tree holes need old growth trees to be able to excavate nesting cavities. Us WN's have chopped all the old decent timber down, so there is a shortage of old trees for the birds to use. Nest boxes encourage species to stay and breed. O/\
