Sounds like a large project you have there esa, but a wonderful thing you are doing. All birds everywhere are precious they were here before us of course so they deserve our care and respect. Keep us posted won't you
The poles are of two types. One set is a pole I have to dig a hole for. An easier one to install has a metal rod hammered into rather soft prairie soil, with the pole slipped over it. I do have some trouble pulling out the metal rod at times.
I am still doing the boxes this year. My daughter gave me 4 boxes to put up (to replace the worst 4) as a Christmas present. The park has some boxes that I can use, made by a volunteer, but are way too big. House wrens will take over those as well, but it is a lot of empty space the male has to take up with ticks before the female makes a tiny nest.
