Sylvia and Gabriel monitored the trail this weekend and reported a lot of activity. Boxes #1 & 8 had empty nests, and the old nests were removed and the box cleaned out. Box 2 & 4 remained closed as chicks were near fledging. It was interesting to see that box #6 had it's previous chicks fledged, and new eggs were laid in the old nest. We will need to watch this box to make sure there are no problems associated with the box being reused.
