Yes Kestrels are here year round. In fall the young disperse to feeding
territories which are widely scattered and , of course, the adults get
the preferred areas. As a result some AMKE do migrate within the
continent and what is happening now is a mixture of both. Of interest
one short study observed Makes migration coincidentally with Anax junius
(Common Green Darner) dragonflies for fast food on the run. We should
start seeing pair formation/reunion. Here, we have seen more of each sex
in the last few weeks. During winter the females were on the better
territories and the males on areas more removed.
