Kestrels… for now

The resident Red-tails are certainly still in the area, but I’ve had no luck locating their nest, if they even have one this year.

For now, a pair of Kestrels are nesting in downtown.  They’re small and hard to spot, but just as interesting.

They get chased around too, by Crows.

The resident RT’s frequent the south side of town, leaving the north side open….. for the inquisitor!  welcome back.
