The young male and the light female almost a week later.
Since these three birds have had about a week to get used to being Kestrels
there was another young male, darker, show up yesterday. (May 31) He
has darker blue on his wings than the first male. He must be the reason
that the father kept going back to the original nest. Yesterday Tommy and
I saved him from a cat. We feared that his right wing may have been injured and
caught him to look him over. He seems alright but he isn't very good at
staying alive yet. We put him in a tree where he will be safe for the
night. The father is courting another female adult. Not only is he
my choice for "Father of the Year" but he seems to be quite the ladies
man. We may have another brood before this is all over.
