Holiday Special

Help the Brown-headed Nuthatches. Buy one nest box at the regular price of $15, give one box for us to install in a public place for just $10 more. We will put up a box at a school, park, or wildlife area of our choosing. Click here for details and to see our other bird houses for sale. They make great holiday gifts.

Barn Owl Web Cam

New Hope Audubon, together with the US Army Corps of Engineers, has installed a web cam in one of our Barn Owl nest boxes near the Jordan Lake Dam. The antenna is now permanently installed, so the camera is operational 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Here's the link.

The nest box is NOT currently occupied, but we hope someone will move in this winter or in the spring. So check in from time to time just to see if anything is happening. If we learn of any activity, we will announce it here and through our various social media outlets.

New Hope Audubon sponsers the Jordan Lake Christmas Bird Count each year. This year, the count will be on Sunday, January 4, 2015. For detailed information click here.
