June 8, 2020. Here is a quick update from the kestrel box program: We managed to get the boxes serviced and ready before the pandemic closed down our intern participation. Erika and I finished our planned upgrading of the most active boxes with metal sheeting around the poles/trees. Use by kestrels and screech owls was similar to last year, as documented by the number of boxes with eggs. No monitoring occurred after that to check on chicks. Ron Robinson reported that the nest box near his house produced fledglings!
