The main goal of Ève's research is to better understand how tree swallows choose their nest site, and to determine if the installation of nest boxes can lead to non-ideal habitat choice. Tree swallows are aerial insectivores who usually breed in secondary cavities (i.e. tree cavities excavated by another species). Because those cavities are quite rare, they readily use nest boxes, which is why we often install them as a conservation tool.
