Check it out! The American Kestrel Partnership spotted a female roosting in the kestrel cam nest box for the first time last night! This bodes well for the upcoming kestrel cam season.
The infrared camera is pretty spiffy, no? Handy for spotting night-time activity!
Yeah kestrels! I need some to come live in my nest box too.
Archer has been spending time with Gemmie (the horse), practicing for our Spring Affaire celebrating falconry on the 22nd. They make quite the pair. 🐤✨🐴✨ #bird #horse #igbird #animal #falconry (at www.arc4raptors.org)
I would love to see these guys at my bird feeder.. Maybe I need to move to Australia.
One more pic of the osprey just before release - you can really see what a huge wingspan they have! #bird #osprey #rehab #wildlife #igbird (at www.arc4raptors.org)
I find this stuff so interesting - an X-Ray of our rehab eagles wing, showing the pins the vet put in to help it heal properly. Since this eagle came in on February 14th, we’ve been calling her Valentine. Our wonderful vet even put a heart on her wing wrap. 💖 #bird #eagle #wildlife #rehab #xray #sharingsmarts #igbird

Here’s yet another awesome thing about Japan: Pigeon Mask Parties.
Whether they’re made of feathers or latex, hanging out in the park or at a bar, it’s clear that pigeons love to flock. Did you know that a group of pigeons is called a loft? That means you could also call these gatherings Loft Parties. It sounds like Pigeon Mask code.
… This is a real thing.
