You can see the boxes are distributed around, mostly under good canopy cover and near meadows for foraging and all boxes face NE (cooler). Some are on different tree species, some near small drainages, some with a different slope aspect. It will be really exciting to check these boxes. Other cavity nesters that might find the boxes homey are western screech owl, ash-throated flycatcher, northern flying squirrel, wood rats and??? Monitoring begins in early March. Stay tuned!
|This box #8 will be under a fairly dense cavity when the oaks leaf out. |
You can see the canopy closure in the aerial google earth photo above
taken in late May.
