Word of a young kestrel on the ground at Theisen’s in Pella reached SOAR friend, Marla. She searched and searched from the roof of the building for a nest nearby, adults, other juveniles and nothing. Finding no adults to help care for this young male, he was rescued – a parking lot is not a good place for a young kestrel.
