Came home today to find an empty box! My female 27- and male 28-day old kestrel chicks have done their thing and flown the coop. Nothing left in the box but the limp south-bound end of a once north-bound lizard.
Help! My nest box is getting many ants! Is this normal or dangerous for the chicks (8 & 9 days old now). My video from overnight indicates they appeared sometime in the later afternoon yesterday and were in the box and very active since then.
