06022019 American Kestrel - 2
This little kestrel was found hopping around in Fort Wayne. Our rescue line was called.
Our rescue line asked the caller to look for a nest and/or its parents. Unfortunately neither were found.
Our volunteers picked up this guy and brought it to our treatment facility. After its initial examination, it appeared to be in good health just hungry.
The following morning our veterinarian did an examination and agreed with the initial exam. This little guy will be given time to mature and learn to eat on its own and fly before it will be released.
This young Kestrel has been moved to one of our volunteer's homes. She will monitor his food and weight. When he is big enough , he will be moved to the pens with our other young kestrels, where he can learn to take care of himself.
This young kestrel has matured enough to be moved to our rehabilitation facility with our other young kestrels. He will eventually be released.
