expanding WGLBBO's kestrel nextbox project into the city

There's a well-known very large bridge in central-city Milwaukee that now has kestrel nestboxes installed on its structure, thanks to Paul Novotny, Bridge Maintenance Manager of the City of Milwaukee, and his men Greg and John - (see photos). We're grateful to them for their help. Next steps include monitoring of the nestboxes by students from  New Horizons Academy who work with environmental educator Chad Thomack from Milwaukee's Urban Ecology Center - and to Melissa Cook, WDNR's Manager of the Hank Aaron State Trail, who helped connect us with Paul and his crew. Lots of great partners on a great project for WGLBBO (the Western Great Lakes Bird and Bat Observatory)! Thanks to all involved.
