Continuing Monitoring Boreal Owl Boxes in Jackson County

June 4-5 into the morning of the 6th, 2017

Richard Stevens:

On June 4th and 5th, I finished monitoring my Boreal Owl nesting boxes in and around the Colorado State Forest (Jackson).  This year 129 boxes yielded successful nesting at two boxes.  American Kestrels used two additional boxes and squirrels occupied three boxes.

The weather cooperated nicely.  Temperatures averaged 56 degrees.  Surprisingly anemometer readings stayed between 4 & 9 mph.  That is quite rare for the Colorado State Forest especially at night.
