Darlene Sillick (OBS Board Member and co-advisor for central Ohio Young Birders Club) provides some background on Katelyn's story:

"This past spring, Katelyn Shelton decided she wanted a trail of 6 boxes to monitor for the season. She built and installed the boxes with her family and she set the bar high to record the data on Cornell Nestwatch and take photos and write about her wonderful experience. At age 14, her article was picked up by Robyn Bailey, director of Cornell Nestwatch and it was in their eNews letter in early May. This summer a writer for National Audubon asked Katelyn to write about her full trail experience."
