The Orange County Audubon Society will present “Restoring the American Kestrel Across New York” on Wed., Feb. 7 at 6:30 p.m. at the Albert Wisner Public Library, located at 1 McFarland Dr. in Warwick.
In 2009, Audubon New York partnered with the New York State Department of Transportation to launch an American Kestrel recovery effort. This robin-sized falcon can be found throughout the state and are most common in meadows, pastures, and farm fields, but also live in cities and towns. Kestrels are cavity nesters, preferring holes in dead trees rather than building nests, and favor areas surrounded by large open areas with plenty of hunting perches nearby. This program will discuss ways to help increase their numbers.
To register for the program, call the Library at 986-1047, ext. 3 or visit www.albertwisnerlibrary.org.
