General Discussion : Thrilled to have a Kestrel family in our backyard again for the 4th year

This is the 4th year that we've had the privelege of a Kestrel family using a nestbox in our suburban backyard, in Benicia, CA (the box was originally meant to attract an owl). We used a 30-m endoscope camera to look in the box today, and were thrilled to discover the female steadfastly with her clutch. The images were a bit blurry, but there looked to be at least 5 chicks. This is the earliest they've ever had chicks, and we had at least one other Kestrel pair competing for the box.
