Hi! I am monitoring a couple of Kestrels and they are adopting the following behavior:
There are three eggs in the nest box. During the day the male sometimes takes care of the eggs inside the nest box. The female is outside the nest box sleeping and enjoying the movement from the top of my balcony. For 11 days the female slept in the nest box. Now, it's been 4 days since she's slept in the nest box, leaving the eggs alone.
Is this behavior normal?
When does the hatching period start and how is it carried out?
Could anyone give some information?
