05302017 American Kestrel - 2

Admission Date: 
UPDATE: We love it when we can re-nest babies! Their mother can do a better job of raising them and teaching them to hunt than we can! This baby and its sibling were re-nested the day they came in.

Initial exam:  One of the babies was quiet, the other very feisty.  Both were good weight and no injuries were found.  Since they have been on the ground all day, some subcutaneous fluids were given before the rerscuer attempts to re-nest them.
