Kestrels

In addition to the RTH's and Peregrines I monitor, fledging season for the Kestrels is also here. I have been keeping a close eye on the uptown Kestrels as they come and go from the nest hole. Here's the male,

and the female!




Here they are perched together...


Like an arrow, the males slices from the shared perch!

He misses the lucky sparrow and flys overhead!

And alights on an antenna...

where he looks around,

before flying off!



and rejoining his mate, empty taloned!

Inbound LAG, outbound NEW.
