Ray Pinter, of West Bend, has received the 2020 Lifetime Achievement Award from the Bluebird Restoration Association of Wisconsin (BRAW). Pinter was cited for his many years of helping hundreds of residents start their own bluebird nest box trails.
He now maintains and monitors trails with 70 nest boxes of his own. As Pinter noted: “Each nesting season brings new challenges but also new opportunities to learn about these fascinating cavity nesters.”
Some of his trails are located on the Cedar Lakes Conservation Foundation and Ozaukee-Washington County Land Trust properties. “The trusts provide the habitat and BRAW supplies the knowledge – a great recipe for helping the birds we love,” said Pinter.
