About the Program
The Fidelity Investments facility in Merrimack, NH is located approximately 50 miles northeast of Boston, Massachusetts. The site is situated on a large grassland, with a variety of breeding bird species historically reported on the property. To help provide habitat for these birds, employees manage nest boxes.

Practices and Impacts
  • The current nest box project began in 2017. The 19 nest boxes were repaired and upgraded with predator guards to minimize brood loss by predation. Based on guides from the Cornell Lab of Ornithology and through partnerships with local consultants, two bird boxes were relocated to align with the nesting needs of the monitored species.
  • Weekly monitoring was conducted by Fidelity employees and results have been shared with the Cornell Lab of Ornithology’s NestWatch program. Monitoring results show that the nest box program is successful, with an annual average of 15 boxes with nesting activity from all three monitored species. Some boxes were used for multiple broods per year.
  • The boxes support Eastern bluebird, tree swallow, and black-capped chickadee populations.
