It appears our American Kestrel’s are encountering less success on their second nesting. The first egg from the clutch of four hatched on 24 July. The expectation was the others should of hatch in succession. Four days later, the other three eggs have not hatched. It is probable that the other three will not hatch.
Hopefully we’ll see the single chick make it. It is important to remember that double-brooding by this species is not common. Thus, this second nesting is a bit of a bonus.
