American Kestrels 2015

American Kestrel

American Kestrel

American kestrels (Falco sparverius) are year-round residents of Big Valley CA (Modoc County), where we live. For as long as I can remember, kestrels have raised a yearly brood on a ledge between the double outer walls of our hay shed. Happily, Leonard and I noticed that a kestrel pair is again using that nest site. There should be 2015 kestrel (also called sparrow hawk) juveniles flying about the barnyard in May or June.
