The kestrel nesting season has concluded for 2017, with four fledglings now flying out in the world.
Therefore, Kestrel Cam is turned off for now, however,you can check out our forums to discuss kestrels with experts, or follow us on social media to follow continued kestrel discovery. This Kestrel Cam is located in Boise, Idaho at The Peregrine Fund’s World Center for Birds of Prey.
Once the fledglings can hunt and survive on their own, they will leave the parents themselves.

This first flight is called 'fledging' and it is when a baby bird mostly leaves the nest for good.
Among American Kestrels, it is not uncommon for fledglings to return to the nest box, for roosting at night or for a quick rest.
Keep an eye out for the next nesting season in 2018, which typically begins in March-May in Idaho.
We'll be excited to start up the live stream again when nesting behavior begins!
