alt(Dalyce Epp) — It’s a hot mid-August afternoon in Vancouver, and our group of four is at the west side of Vancouver’s McCleery golf course, inspecting houses.

None of us are building inspectors, or even golfers. As such, we are very careful to watch out for anyone who’s aiming to hit a ball in our direction - or in any direction.
 
And, we respect that we are the interlopers here, where most people just come to golf.
 
We’re here to observe and inspect what are commonly known as bird houses or bird boxes, but properly known as ‘nest boxes’.
 
These structures are meant to provide nesting places for birds during their breeding season - spring and early summer.

To Todd Kuczma, bigger is certainly better. Thus, the director of BlackWolf Golf is taking what was a Calgary-based match play tournament and spreading it out across the country.
