Young bird of prey crashes into a window and then goes down to the ground!
This is our first Bird Of Prey rescue video and I am so happy I got to be there for the rescue, visit her during the rehabilitation, and all the way to the releasing back to the wild!
The American kestrel is the smallest and most common falcon in North America and I actually never got to meet one until that day - I didn't even know what she was, but our friends on Instagram knew to help me out with that:
I am so happy that one of our supporters sent us the special gloves for handling birds of prey... it's like they knew I would need those one day :-)

Special thanks to South Bay Wildlife Rehab for fostering this baby, for training her on how to survive in the wild, and for inviting me to visit every step of the way. To learn more about their work, please visit

    When I was a kid my Dad hit and killed a Kestrel with his car. He had a taxidermist stuff him with dead mouse still in claws and placed it strategically on top of the TV, this was before remote controls, he knew we were scared out of our wits to go near this thing and therefore would not change the channels from football to cartoons, it worked, haunts me to this this day.

    P L E A S E - donate to this organization and even if it’s five dollars. Imagine if all of these subscribers donated a dollar what a difference it could make.

    For wild raptors, best to throw a towel over them. With LEATHER gloves, gently work a hand underneath until you can get it around BOTH lower legs or the ankle (' knee') joints. Then you can lift the bird. Try to keep the leg as straight as this makes it hard for them to grip on. Their feet are their primary weapons, control the feet and you control the bird. (I used to work for a zoo falconry and rehab program.)

    I started crying when u were showing all the other birds around the rehabilitation center. Theyre all just so beautiful, this earth and all the animals on it are so beautiful, i wish humans would respect nature and animals more and take care of them like u guys do. The world would be a lot better place. I also love her call at the end after she was released 😭❤.

    This kestrel is so beautiful!!! I did a falconry course a few years ago and fell in love with raptors. Incredible birds, all of them! I’m a massive Corvid fan too and would love to have a pet raven. It’s unlikely as I’d rather see them wild, but still, one can dream!

    I needed this...Thank you Eldad! I’m in Portugal now and the local pet stores are full of beautiful birds, all crowded in small cages, totally breaks my heart. Could not even spend 1 minute there to buy dog poo bags. Not sure what to do...I believe one can always do something, but I have no clue in this case.
