Cavity Nesting Birds and Abbreviations
These are the birds that we find nesting in our boxes and their standard four-letter codes designated by the Bird Banding Lab.
|European Starling 1||EUST|
|House Finch (occasionally)||HOFI|
|House Sparrow 1||HOSP|
1 European Starling and House Sparrow are non-native, invasive species. Our Cavity Nesters Recovery Program is intended to help deter the use of nest boxes by these species.
