3 1/2 week old American Kestrel chicks in a nestbox attached to our house. The nest overlooks a wetland and fields. Five total chicks hatched, and they have all left the nest as of today. The parents provided a daily diet of mice.

    Can You Tell Me How High Up Your Nest Box Is ?

  2. Hi Kandy, we generally recommend kestrel nest boxes be place between 10-30 feet high. You can find more info @ http://nestwatch.org/learn/all-about-birdhouses/birds/american-kestrel/.
