SOAR volunteer and Woodbury County Conservation staff member, Tyler, rescued these two hatch-year female kestrels. They appear to be without injury and just need a bit more support before returning to the wild.

Thanks to Kevin and Kim Gerety and family for the donation of the crate these two are in!

The other female needs to molt in a better tail and will over-winter at SOAR.
