May 2002 -- There are actually four American Kestrels in this photo!  In the middle is a young male, almost ready to take his first flight.  To his left is another young male, identifiable by its blue wings.  On the right, squeezed tightly together, are two young females, recognizable by their brown wings and larger size.
