WILTON — Real estate for the birds — that’s the crux of a collaborative contest between Ambler Farm in Wilton and Lachat Town Farm in Weston. It’s called The Nest Big Thing: A Birdhouse Building Competition uniting two towns through creativity and camaraderie.
The event is open to individuals, families, organizations, businesses and others. Participants are invited to build a birdhouse between now and April 24 and submit it to one of the farms. The birdhouses will be hung outdoors at each farm from May through June where visitors may see them and vote on their favorites.
