More Tree Swallow Boxes

IMG_8444
NJMC naturalists Gabrielle Bennett-Meany and Michael Newhouse installed 20 new Tree Swallow nesting boxes in Mill Creek Marsh by boat earlier this week.

A few Tree Swallows arrived to inspect their new digs but we did not see anyone move in. We did see (and hear) a Peregrine Falcon zip past the boat on a strafing run toward  Green-winged Teal, a Bald Eagle, a Red-Tail and a Northern Harrier.

    Hello,
    We were just at Mill Creek Marsh this morning and there is only one nesting box from another year and a pair of swallows looking for a nice home. Could you please put some along the walkways where the old nesting boxes were?
    Thank you
