Data from: Falcons using orchard nest boxes reduce fruit-eating bird abundances and provide economic benefits for a fruit-growing region

Megan E. Shave, Stephanie A. Shwiff, Julie L. Elser & Catherine A. Lindell
1. Suppression of pest species via a native predator is a regulating ecosystem service that has the potential to limit crop damage and produce economic benefits. American kestrels (Falco sparverius) are widespread, highly-mobile, generalist predators that hunt in human-dominated habitats and potentially provide previously undocumented ecosystem services in agricultural landscapes. 2. We hypothesized that kestrel activity associated with nest boxes and artificial perches acts to increase perceived predation risk that, in combination with direct predation,...
