So . . . . How are those Kestrel Nest Boxes doing??
Well, look for yourself!!
How about the other box?
Well . . .
The box we gave to Dr. Gray, that hosted the starling nest, provided warm, tasty food to the hawks this last week. Of the 5 in the box, I caught 3, with 2 escaping. Richard also inspected the nest which was placed on the side of a shed on his friend and co-worker Laurie's farm, over in Wisconsin. It was empty, other than a small fledgling wasp nest, which was removed.
I couldn't be happier! Two of the boxes we placed are housing new kestrels. Hopefully they will return year after year, and more will adopt the boxes that are empty.
