HELP NEEDED MONITORING KESTREL NESTBOXES:

kestrel-box-sm

If you are interested in monitoring existing American Kestrel nest boxes this spring, your assistance would be greatly appreciated.

What is needed: pick a nestbox in Ozaukee or Milwaukee County (we can provide a list), and park or sit not far away from the box (about 50 yards is a good distance - you don't want to get too close) and observe the box for about 20-30 minutes with binoculars. A form on which to record data will be provided to you. If you sign up to monitor a box (or you could trade off with another person), please do so *once each week until young are fledged (if box is occupied*). If other species take up residence in a box, we'd like to know that too.

Questions? Or for list and forms: E-mail Bill Mueller at
