Description

A nesting pair of American Kestrels had hatched out 5 nestlings and spent much of their time delivering food to the new birds. Most of the time the male was out hunting and there was a delivery ritual when he brought back food for the nest. Here the male is just arriving back to deliver a mouse to the female who will take to the nest in a kestrel box.
