Kestrel Feeding is a Dance Party
While of Kestrel feathers I know (well, really practical things like tensile strength of primaries), peculiarities of Kestrel behaviour I could not have known.
21 April 2008 at the Rogers Wildlife Rehabilitation Center
As a “guest volunteer” at Rogers Wildlife, I had the opportunity to feed Kestrels (Falco sparverius). One greeted me ceremoniously by dancing upon my head before I could make it through the entrance even. The reward for such a display is a portion of beef heart.
