Wild Wings Company

In the early 1970's, John became an employee of C.D.F. (California Division of Forestry) Ecology Corps, so he could make extra money to further his music career. He fought forest fires, participated in conservation projects throughout the state of California and this foundation prepared him for a lifetime of communing with nature.

A friend of his at the California Department of Fish and Game, turned him onto cavity nesting birds back in 1995, and he has been actively involved in cavity nesting bird conservation ever since. In 2000, John established Wild Wing Company, after personally witnessing the success that beneficial cavity nesting birds have on impacting pests in our vineyard operations.

From rodents to ground and flying insect control, Wild Wing Company offers a wide variety of cavity-nesting boxes for Barn Owls, Screech Owls, American Kestrels, Bluebirds, Violet-green Swallows and Tree Swallows. Also available are exotic bird traps for controlling pest birds that destroy crops, transfer  diseases to livestock, and kill or drive way native cavity nesting birds from their nest sites.

Since 2003, Wild Wing Company has been a member of CWA (California Waterfowl Association), a conservation society dedicated to the preservation of waterfowl, wetlands and habitat development. Wild Wing Company offers fantastic nest boxes for the preservation of one of the most beautiful birds in this hemisphere: the Wood Duck
