In 1995 Ben Black built four Bluebird Boxes to be put up at Oakwood Trails. Among those who attached boxes to poles, dug holes for the poles and set them were Lorie Black, Laura Packer, Charlene and Tom Wheeler. Through the years, all of these have continued to have a keen interest in the Bluebirds of Oakwood Trails.Â Laura also tended the 42 Bluebird boxes at Dyess Air Force Base.
The Texas Bluebird Society Board of Directors sent this True Blue Friend Plaque to Randy Packer in Memory of Laura Packer. It was installed on Bluebird Box #3 at Oakwood Trails, Saturday, September 26, 2009 by Dan Symonds, Charlene Wheeler, and Kathy Hampton.Â Thanks Randy for Sharing. The TBS’s motto is “Bluebirds Across Texas…one nestbox at a time.”
It was so fitting that on this gorgeous morning we saw at this site numerous White-wing Dove, Scissor-tailed Flycatchers, Barn Swallows, a Golden-fronted Woodpecker, and FOUR Eastern Bluebirds.Â Thanks Bluebirds for your “Flyover for Laura!”
