6/3/2017: At around am, the first of the nestlings took their very first flight - and the other three quickly followed!
This first flight is called 'fledging' and it is when a baby bird mostly leaves the nest for good.
This is also the time the eagles are given yearly physicals.
Thank you everyone who watched the cam and commented! 5/24/2017: Early in the morning, the nestlings were banded by Boise State University students from Dr. We can confirm that we have three females and one male nestling, and all four appear to be in good condition.
While we were at it, we took genetic samples to map the genetics differences across the American Kestrel's range.
Get in the groove now and enjoy these sexy asian girls from the comfort of your couch!
The kestrel nesting season has concluded for 2017, with four fledglings now flying out in the world.
