In 2009, Audubon New York partnered with the New York State Department of Transportation (DOT) to launch a American Kestrel recovery effort. This robin-sized falcon can be found throughout the state and are most common in meadows, pastures, and farm fields, but also live in cities and towns. Kestrels are cavity nesters, preferring holes in dead trees rather than building nests, and favor areas surrounded by large open areas with plenty of hunting perches nearby.  This program will discuss ways to help increase their numbers.
