This male American Kestrel came to Hawk Creek from another rehabilitator in the Southern Tier. Arrow was rescued by a concerned citizen that found him very weak and with mites that were destroying his feathers. After proper nutrition and parasite treatment he regained his strength but was still unable to fly well enough to hunt. American Kestrels, while not as fast as their cousins the peregrine falcon, have the unique ability to hover in a field while hunting.
