Last year, Islander Ken Edwards placed a large bird box constructed for the American Kestral within Parade Grounds meadows maintained by Fishers Island Conservancy. We are all hoping this smallest and most delicate falcon will nest.

Today, I was happy to see three Kestrals diving and darting, hunting and hovering midst trees closest to South beach.
