2018 Kestrels!

2018 American Kestrels

Turn back the clock with the 2018 American Kestrel cam and watch a breeding pair of kestrels raise four chicks in their nest box on a private property near Prairie Du Chien, Wisconsin.

Where is D27?

D27 in November

Where is D27? She is currently spending time just south of Decorah. Brett wrote: “D-27 remains in the area on or near the N.
