It was another early Saturday morning, another breakfast without eating any breakfast, another racing with time to make it to the train, another new adventure.. Yet unique and fascinating!
I went to the forest to rise the nesting-boxes for Pigmy Owls (Glaucidium passerinum), birds that above all, need our help!
The event was called “Būdos inkilų žygis” – a journey to rise 8 nesting-boxes into 8 different trees. Al we had to do was: find the nesting-boxes, find the trees, rise, smile the the nature.
Yet before the event I did not know what i will do. I did not know how I’ll get to the village where the event was about to start – and I was almost late, because I overslept. At one time I even thought about not going and turning back.. I had to climb and climb over snow!
It was an achievement of a day for me when I hitched one of the participants, a forester, got to the destination, on time, smiling.
I first saw this sign – ” nature does not forgive mistakes”…
Then, when we divided into three groups, I raised my first nesting-box in my life, with a colleague forest lover who was also a novice.
This was the nesting-box and the tree we rised it into.
Our company was great too… A group of 5-graders from a school, a couple with a child, two nature lovers with amazing photo-cameras that they did not use, a forester with his family, a dog..
I think I have to thank Giedrius Vaivilavičius, who organized this event, with a hope that some Pigmy Owls will inhabit our nesting-boxes and such events will be made again..
