This bird above is a fledging American Kestrel, North America's smallest falcon.
She was found in the parking lot of a brass factory in Romulus, being attacked
by several robins. She wasn't able to fly yet, and was kept for three weeks until
she could fly well. She is now released and hunting on her own, but she still
occasionally stops by Dr. Smyth's house for a free meal of (dead) mice.
