The kestrels must be doing a number on the snake population in the area! Yet another snake is delivered to the nest box by the male in this clip. Watch the pair have a short conversation and then leave the box one after the other.

The American Kestrel cam is a collaboration between the Cornell Lab or Ornithology and the Raptor Resource Project.
American Kestrels are just beginning to nest in a gravel-bottomed nest on private property near Prairie Du Chien, Wisconsin. The nest box is located on the side of a traditional limestone-footed barn, overlooking a rolling grassland that slopes away into folded hills and forests. Our partners at the Raptor Resource Project have watched kestrels breed at this site for over 25 years, and the wonderful combination of grassland, forest, and water that surrounds the property is an excellent example of the habitat that kestrels need to survive and thrive. Watch cam.
Don't miss the outside view! A second camera has been installed to give views of the nest box opening from the outside so viewers can observe the kestrels' comings and goings, as well as the nestlings once they begin peering outside. To toggle between the two camera views, click the "switch camera" icon in the lower right of the livestream player, next to the settings wheel.
