American Kestrel Partnership

Calvert County Natural Resources is participating in an exciting research and conservation program called the American Kestrel Partnership coordinated by The Peregrine Fund, an international non-profit organization committed to the conservation of birds of prey worldwide.  The American Kestrel is North America’s smallest and most colorful falcon, though unfortunately kestrel populations are declining across many regions of the continent.  As a participant in the Partnership, Calvert County Natural Resources is building and installing nest boxes locally to provide breeding habitat for this cavity nesting species.  In addition to building nest boxes, we are periodically monitoring the boxes to collect data for the Partnership’s research program.
