Delia Scholes and I found 5 Kestrels in the Snoqualmie Valley today, in a drive from Preston to Carnation, Stillwater, Sykes Lake and back through the Carnation marsh.
I was modestly encouraged by this! I don't remember seeing that many ever and we drive through often, although I'm sure other birders have a better handle on how many are actually normal there. (Could they be moving this early?)
I worry about Kestrels. I remember the many years when they were regularly visible in Seattle from Elliott Ave on the drive through Interbay, and I remember them breeding regularly in Everett. I remember the sad day when Roger Orness reported the death of the male of the at-that-time-lone (last?) breeding pair in the Kent Valley, while defending his young.
So were happy to have a good Kestrel Day!
