Mark Dandeneau, a Naugatuck resident and steward at the Gunntown Passive Park and Nature Preserve in Naugatuck, has set up three new wooden bluebird houses at the park on Gunntown Road. Coordinating with the Naugatuck Conservation Commission, the Naugatuck Environmental Group and the Cornell Laboratory of Ornithology’s nest watcher program, the entrances to the houses faces towards open habitat. The male Eastern bluebird brings nesting materials and the female makes the nest inside the wooden box. The bluebird houses sit atop poles with guard covers preventing predators from invading the nests. Anyone wishing to join Mark and the Gunntown bluebird brigade of nest watchers may contact the Naugatuck Parks and Recreation Department at 203-720-7043.
