Kestrel Eggs

Kestrel Eggs

April 7, 2017 - 10:26am -- michelleaxtell

Today we checked on our two American Kestrel nest boxes. There were no eggs in our front box. We were disappointed because chicks had hatched in that box for the past 3 years. Then we checked the box at the back of the building. There are 6 eggs in that box! This is good news because Starlings had layed their eggs in that box the past 2 years. We are looking forward to seeing the chicks hatch in a few weeks.
