I'm monitoring two nest boxes in a state park, where I work, but I see from photos here that some boxes are located in suburban areas.

Can sand be used as bedding material?

Hello I'm looking to see if anyone near Maryland is using Bal Chatris traps to catch kestrels in the winter.  I have my banding permit  and have been banding nestlings but need to work with someone to get approved for using traps as well. 

Is there a list of qualified banders in the Portland, OR area? Is there interest in banding offspring for research purposes? I had reached out to the local Audubon Society, but never heard back.
