Six of eleven bluebird nest boxes are up and ready for action. Bluebirds have already begun building nests in two of them, and two more had a few pine needles and bits of grass in them. Pennsylvania sedge and corydalis were in bloom in the Como Woodland Outdoor Classroom. City employees were just about to burn the shortgrass prairie in the woodland, since wind conditions were right. They promised to protect the empty nest box located in the middle of that prairie.
