Tucson Kestrel Cam
This nestbox was installed on private property when the homeowner noticed a pair of kestrels hanging around a lone saguaro back in 2019. It lacked cavities so kestrels could not utilize it for nesting. This area otherwise was the perfect habitat for the pair so the nestbox went up on the saguaro as an experiment. A hose and paracord were used for attachment to avoid damaging the saguaro. Almost immediately the pair began to investigate it and nested in it that year! Now outfitted with a camera, this nestbox provides a glimpse into the intimate part of the American Kestrel lives. Live feed courtesy of our partners, Tucson Audubon.
