I just got home after releasing JULIUS, the adult male kestrel I've had for a few weeks. He was found in town with no reason for his not being able to fly. I still don't know what was wrong but when he left the crate in his own nest territory he never hesitated. As I drove up to the release site I saw three other kestrels in a very large dead tree. That's where he headed and all four of them flew off together. A great homecoming for him. Naturally it happened so fast I never got to take any photos.
