Research and Conservation


The NJA Research Department and Citizen Scientists have been monitoring bird populations throughout the Duke Farms property.  Again this year, there were abundant nesting grasshopper sparrows, bobolink, and kestrel in the grasslands.  

 

American Kestrel have begun nesting for the 2014 season.  Stop by to watch courtship, feeding, and rearing of young from the nest boxes near the Farm Barn..
