The Kestrel House

A few years ago we put up this bird house for a kestrel. We haven't seen any activity until this year. We decided to check it out this year.















Here Dave is unhooking the roof so we can look in.

















Inside we find the male sitting on the nest. We sure hope there are some eggs underneath him. Its kind of exciting like we are the proud parents waiting for the babies to be born. This story will continue....
