Kestrel's everyday lives #8

The incubation goes on. Typically, kestrel parents share the responsibility of caring for their young, and our family is no exception. The female spends most of her time in the nest, but when she flies out to stretch her wings, the male is also willing to take over the incubation duties. However, his main concern is searching for and bringing food. Sometimes, neighboring males might approach the nest, which causes our male to become anxious and defensive. The photo captures a moment right after lunch. The female is deep inside the nest sitting on the eggs - she's not visible from this angle. The male is perched on the edge of the wall, near the exit. Look how handsome he is! He's perfectly posing as the dad, the protector of the nest, and the provider.
