Raising Swallows (September 2016)

After hearing about my local Yosemite Area Audubon Society Chapter’s Nest Box Program, I decided to go out with the Conservation crew and try monitoring nest boxes for a day. Absolutely delightful to see Kestrels, Barn Owls, Bluebirds, Flycatchers, and especially Tree Swallows, raising their families. It’s hard work, visiting and cataloging over 100 boxes a day, but what a worthy cause. I am delighted that this print will be the face of the program for a number of years to come. Part of the ongoing Nest Series.
