Alex Katzenson from BSA Troop 230 was able to raise the funds to purchase the materials and build Bird TLC a much needed new mew #1. With his crew that he assembled he started and completed construction in 5 days.
Alex had several challenges to work with.
One is at Bird TLC we have a requirement that the mew must be assembled so it could be un-assembled in sections in a short period of time. If there is another major oil spill, Bird TLC must evacuate the premises within 48 hours. He also must build to USF&W requirements.
Two was he must raise all funds himself. Bird TLC has no money in the budget for new mew construction. All wood must be treated wood.
Three was that the north and east wall must be solid walls.
Four was that the door must face the center of the mew yard.
Five was the roof must be slanted for snow run off.
I must say he did a heck of a job. The first bird to use it won't know how lucky it is to have a brand new mew to recuperate in.
Good job Alex!
