Another kestrel baby

This is McVEY, a young kestrel who thought it was time to leave the nest but it wasn't. He was found caught in the tubing outside a large air conditioning unit near a home in Wapiti. We found the nest tree but the cavity was so high up it would take a bucket truck to get him back to it.

There was another baby peeking out the cavity opening but was smart enough to stay put for now. At this point McVEY has a sore leg and isn't strong enough to go back home so he'll stay here for a few days until I feel he's ready to be returned to his parents. He's very teeny but in excellent condition so it shouldn't be long.
