BaskingYou have all probably met this little American Kestrel before. He comes to visit me now and then as the need dictates. He is an education bird because he has an injured wing that would keep him from being able to hunt and feed himself. Otherwise he is fine. He can fly and when it is not too cold out, as it is now, he has a mew (raptor home) that gives him the room to fly and to see the territory around him. As I have said before, this is not the life we would choose for him, but it is up to us to provide quality of life within the context of his circumstances.
