Release time

Three of our Kestrel hatchlings are about ready to get their freedom. all three have grown up to be mighty handsome male Kestrels (unusual that 3 from the same brood are males) they're also known as Sparrow Hawks but they really aren't Hawks at all they are really the smallest member of the Falcon family, they don't really eat Sparrows too much either, they are mostly bug and small reprile eaters.

NAB :-)

Handsome little threesome
