Anna and I have been spending quite a bit of our time working out at the Juniper Prairie Wilderness Area, searching for ‘Southeastern’ American Kestrel nests in natural cavities and also doing point counts of the birds that use this special area. Anna has already posted about this area once before, but I thought I would share a few photos that I have taken in the Juniper Prairie Wilderness recently. Although the avian diversity is a bit low this time of the year, with all the migrants having already passed through and now only the breeding species remaining, every day that I go out to the wilderness area I end up seeing something really neat. Here is a link to an eBird checklist of one of my favorite mornings out in the Juniper Prairie Wilderness scrub, which gives you a pretty good idea of the birdlife of the area.
