Late winter, the MFHT got together to build and construct several nesting boxes to help support the American Kestrel. The American Kestrel population has declined significantly over recent years. The club wanted to make an effort to help this beautiful raptor.
We contacted Joey Mason of “Keeping Comany with Kestrels, Inc.” to donate several of the nest boxes. She will continue her efforts to install, replace and monitor the boxes. Click here to visit her website and learn more about her efforts.
We’d like to give a special thanks to Bruno DiDuca who took the time to gather materials and head up the project. We’d also like to thank Bruno again and John Schuster for their time and dedication in constructing the nest boxes.
The remaining nest boxes will be installed and monitored by MFHT falconry club members.
We can hope that with hard work and education these beautiful birds can thrive in numbers once again.
