06012016 American Kestrel
A lady named Julie Kessler found a American Kestrel in her yard laying in some tall grass. She didn't want the bird to get injuryed by other animals so she called Our 24 hr rescue line. I was sent out to get the bird in Kendallville. When got there, I couldn't find any physically injuries but, The bird was a little thin and dehydrated. I realized this bird was young and sometimes young birds are not very good at being out their own yet. So I hydrated the bird and got it to our Vet, where the bird could be thoroughly examined. I am happy to report the young male Kestrel is eating well on his own now and should be ready for release after a short stay at our rehab.
