Just saw this.  This is a fine basic box.  If you want to build the 
deluxe version that Art Gingert designed after at least 25 years of 
constructing, erecting and monitoring kestrel boxes check out this 
link.  It is posted on Tom Sayers web site about his banding efforts in 
the northeasten part of the state.  Art is super meticulous and has 
incorporated many design refinements to the basic boxes and finds them 
more accommodating to kestrels.  Worth a look.  These two guys have put 
up many boxes and done CT's kestrels a great service.

They certainly need all the help we can give them!
