Give the Gift of a Bluebird House

December 17, 2021 @ 8:00 am - January 31, 2022 @ 5:00 pm

Give the Gift of Bluebirds!

If you live in the Willow Springs area or bike along the Centennial Trail, you have probably noticed a growing population of bluebirds. We have veterinarians Ted Fitch and Jeff Wieser to thank for this. 25 years ago, Dr. Fitch, then head veterinarian at Merrick’s Animal Hospital, began installing and maintaining bluebird houses along the fairways of the four Cog Hill Golf Courses. He and Dr. Wieser continue that work today. This year alone they helped fledge 401 bluebirds and tree swallows.

Now you can sponsor a bluebird house and contribute to CatNap at the same time. For your donation of $75 we will install a house, with your name etched on it if you like, and send you a photo of its location, followed by photos of eggs, hatchlings and fledglings.

Please help two great causes with one donation. Give yourself, a family member or a friend a living gift.

Click on our Donate button to make a $75 donation. Designate your donation as a bluebird house. If a gift, please include the name on the house and the email associated with it.
