American Kestrel pair near Duck Bridge

May 29, 2013 in American Kestrel

The Kestrel pair were observed late this afternoon in a tree on the north side of the duck Bridge in Lawrence.  It was dark with overcast skies but enough light to allow the male to show off his colorful outerwear!!  This location is right along the Merrimack River and near numerous prior sightings.  Further observations will be required to determine the nest location.  They have been seen a few times over the last week and this suggests that they may have finalized their nest location.  Stay tuned
