Considering kestrel boxes - Bristow, VA

Hello all,

I monitor a trail for the Virginia Bluebird Society in Bristow, VA. I believe the property would be ideal for kestrel nest box(es) and have permission to place them. Looking for any local veteran kestrel landlords that would be willing to help identify good locations for nest boxes on the property and act as a mentor until I know what I am doing? :) 

Thank you!

Hi Kelly - welcome to the American Kestrel Partnership!

The two nearest AKP partners to your area would be CalvertKestrels, who monitors a network of boxes in SE Maryland, and Kenjen, who monitors a network of boxes in north-central Virginia. You can try reaching out to them directly to see if either would be willing to provide you with some advice and mentorship as you get your program underway. You can view their profiles at the above links, and use the "Contact" tab to send them an email. And if you have any general questions, you're more than welcome to contact our staff at and we'll be happy to help.

We look forward to working together in kestrel conservation!
