Mike also monitors a new nest box made to attract American Kestrels. Bluebirds and Tree Swallows were eagerly checking out boxes today. With extensive grassland habitat, Carlisle Reservation also attracts Eastern Meadowlarks, which were singing for territory along with dozens of Red-winged Blackbirds. Chorus Frogs and Spring Peepers made a concert in wetland forest areas along tributaries of the Black River. Wood Duck pairs explored cavities in the large old trees. By a bridge at the end of the walk, Eastern Phoebes called and courted.
