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.
One good tern deserves another...
