Three Mile Island Flocks to Help Freshen Up Homes for Baby Owls

 

On a brisk and sunny Sunday morning, two dozen people went in search of wood and wings. Three Mile Island's Natural Resource Committee spent the brunchtime hours cleaning more than 20 wood boxes that house owlets, ducklings, and other feathered-friends native to the island.

The annual cleaning is a tradition that includes employees and Capitol Area Ducks Unlimited, a local environmentalist group with a purpose to protect water fowl. The south end of Three Mile Island has 200 acres of untouched forest and wildlife. Bald Eagles, Osprey, and Peregrine Falcons are birds of prey that call the island home. About 30 majestic Blue Heron nests are nestled along the sparkling edge of the Susquehanna River.

"I'm so thrilled to hold a baby owl and help refresh its home!," said Kaitlyn Wagner, TMI Environmentalist.

She along with project lead Jonathan Grove and a bevy of volunteers cleaned each box. Four new nest boxes, provided by the Lancaster chapter of Delta Waterfowl, were also installed.

TMI continues to help our wildlife throughout the year with multiple projects, which include building bat house boxes, volunteering at local wildlife centers, and holding symposiums for children to learn about nature.
