Went to Huntington this early am to pick up another Kestrel being hounded by Robins and Starlings. Arrived to find the caller and two large huskies. The caller asked me to pull close to the barn because the Kestrel was in a bird cage on top of the dogs cage. She indicated the dog was kinda possessive
Picked up the bird and took her to ICU. She was examined and is being looked at. There were no apparent injuries.
As always we pray these guys can be released. Here’s hoping you can quickly be released. Prayer.
06/11/2020 This young female kestrel appears to have been blown out of the nest during the storm. It has no obvious injuries. It will stay with us until it eats well on its own and matures enough to be released
06/29/2020 We have moved this kestrel to our rehabilitation pen with the other orphaned kestrels
