    Ohhhh I will be along for this adventure , you can bet

    This is the type of wildlife stuff I love.
    I just don't find enough of it
  6. I think many people want it to be art, but reality and natural is not always beautiful and symetric or follow the 1/3 rule. I'm just trying to show reality as it is not polished or excess edits. In nature you get few "Do Overs"

    Good Stuff

    I'm curious the nest / hole was it already there ??
  8. I believe it was a Woodpecker hole they are using
  9. Nice series Gary and I am sure many more will come from it. I would guess you know the Kestrel is a cavity nester and many people with them in the area will provide a box for them and they will nest. I know of a group in Wisconsin that has them placed along major roadways and on posts so they can go and band the young and clean the boxes out after nesting is over and they do come back. Maybe do a search on the nestbox.
  10. Most that are using Nestboxes here have a hard time getting them to nest.

    Wild locations seem to be very plentiful. These birds coat the walls with fieces to ward of preditors. Nest are in need of cleaning after fledging chicks.(Smell Bad)
