“AMERICAN KESTREL NEST BOX PROJECT: CONSERVATION AND COMMUNITY ENGAGEMENT”
WITH JENNIFER REDMOND

American kestrels are one of the smallest, but most common, raptors that inhabit Broomfield, and most of North America. Colorful and charismatic, they are about the size of an American robin. With their populations declining since the 1960s, we are focused on learning more about these beautiful raptors and informing conservation efforts. This talk will discuss nest box projects and how they can provide additional kestrel nesting sites, as well as opportunities for research, community engagement, and education.
