The American Kestrel
North America’s smallest falcon species, the American Kestrel is a unique and fascinating animal. It is our most colorful raptor, and also one of the few raptors that is sexually dimorphic. Kestrel populations have been on the decline for the past several decades however, and researchers have been unable to determine what is causing these declines. Now, a new collaborative research project holds the potential to finally uncover this mystery!
