American Kestrel

While we were walking along on the trails at the Great Blue Heron Nature Reserve today, we came across an American Kestrel trying to get a young Great Blue Heron to leave the territory. It soon became very clear why the American Kestrel was protecting the area. Four fledgling American Kestrels were waving their little wings wildly every time one of the adults appeared. We enjoyed watching as the young covered their food every time the adult brought them a tasty morsel. They waited patiently between feedings, sometimes preening or sitting together. Over all it was an amazing experience.
