May 2002 -- A young male American Kestrel, part of a brood of four.  Their parents nested inside an attic, which of course proved to be a less than desirable location!  While they were still nestlings, they were removed from the makeshift nest and placed inside a cardboard box mounted on the wall of the house below the roof.  The adults took to this change without a problem, and eventually all four chicks fledged successfully.
