Thanks John. We had seen so many of them at the Mount Pleasant fields in the 
fall, and then didn’t spot one all winter long, it was a joyous relief to spy 
the one again this morning.

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.

I was under the impression that they were present year round. I noticed one

That's great, Eveline. I saw my first kestrel of year (a male) yesterday on the 
road between Freeville and Dryden. And also a Merlin later in the day. Nice to 
see them coming back.

Just glimpsed my first American kestrel of the year on the Mount Pleasant 
fields. Yay!
