Over the past several years we have conducted nesting box studies.  The chart below outlines some key information regarding our observations.  Since we did not have cameras in the nesting boxes in the early years of our research, data was not collected for 2011, 2012 and 2013.  For the current year data will be updated as observations of nesting box activities become available.

From 2014 to 2021 our nest boxes have successfully fledged 30 Kestrels. Remembering due to the proximity of the 2 nest boxes only one will be occupied for the season, due to territorial habits of the Kestrels. Below are the band numbers of the Kestrel fledges.
