The majority of American kestrels
were observed on utility wires while most ospreys were seen on a nest platform (Table 3).
Six species were admitted >30 times to the IRC, Cooper's Hawk (n=57), Red-tailed Hawk (n=163), American Kestrel
(n=268), Eastern Screech-Owl (n=165), Great Horned Owl (n=191), and Barred Owl (n=85), and accounted for 94% of the raptors admitted to the center.

Mr Wilkins said McDonagh sold two American kestrels
and two little banded goshawks for pounds 900 and, had they all been sold, he would have received around pounds 26,000.
The test detected WNV in [greater than or equal to]50% of RT-PCR-positive birds of the following species: American Kestrels
(Falco s7)arverius) (3/4), Northern Cardinals (Cardinalis cardinalis) (4/6), Common Grackles (3/6), and House Finches (Carpocus mexicanus) (7/7) but was unable to detect WNV in RTPCR-positive Red-tailed Hawks (Buteo jamaicensis) (0/10) and Great Horned Owls (Bubo vitginianus) (0/12).
During the summer of 1981, I observed American kestrels
(Falco sparverius) foraging in open fields of low-growing vegetation in Russell Valley (Nevada Co.
The commonest commuters, in order of numbers, are Cooper's, sharp-shinned, and red-tailed hawks, and American kestrels
Abstract: To evaluate the toxicity of short-term high doses of meloxicam in American kestrels
[Falco sparverius), 32 male captive-born, 1- to 4-year-old American kestrels
were randomly assigned to 4 groups: 3 groups treated with meloxicam (n = 9 per group) and a control group (n = 5).
Daily sightings of red-tailed hawks, bald eagles, sharp-shinned hawks and American kestrels
can be expected.
The Cascades Raptor Center is looking for suitable homes for barn owls and American kestrels
that it received as babies and which are now fully flighted and ready for release.
c) American Kestrels
and the Great Horned Owl were tested at 9-11 days postinoculation, with no detectable virus in swabs.
