Baby Kestrels

It’s that time of the year again!

A local construction company brought us a bucket full of downy Kestrel babies, collected from a construction site nearby.  The nest site was unfortunately destroyed and these babies had no chance of surviving on their own; they were at a very critical stage in their lives and keeping them would mean imprinting them to us. We had the fortunate privilege of caring for them for a short time before they were turned into a rehab facility. They will be released when they are old enough to feed themselves.
