Broken beak
UPDATE: 08/07/21After a 40 day stay with us, this little first year male kestrel that was found in a garage with broken beak tips, was fostered, healed up, passed his “mouse school” training and was released to his forever home with a first year female kestrel in Bryant, IN. Hopefully they will become a mated pair and live a long and happy life together!

This young male Kestrel was picked up by Animal Care and Control in Grabill, IN . It had been caught in someones garage. We examined it to discover it had the tip of its beak broken off somehow. This makes it difficult for the bird to hunt and eat. We will need to keep this bird in our care until the beak grows back. Other than that the bird was in pretty good shape, a little thin from not being able to eat
