Kestrels

My dad found some Kestrel chicks in an old owl box. We rang a local bird expert who came out to our farm and today we watched the Kestrels being tagged. It took ages to get safely up the ladder to tag them.There were two of them ,we think they are 3 weeks old.I got to hold them . VERY FLUFFY!!!!!!!!

  1. Very exciting news Meredith! It must have been quite a shock for your dad when he discovered them! You are incredibly lucky to have held such cute, fluffy chicks. Hopefully one day they will both return as large kestrels and gracefully fly over your farm to say hello. I still can’t believe how big the chick is in the picture! Thank you for sharing this.
