Could this be our fledgling lookin for a home?

If a person goes to https://www.raptorresource.org/ it's listed under "Watch Birds" at the top.  Wisconsin Kestrels.

2 HATCHS!
May 21, 2022
2.15 pm  a shell appeared, Dad came in,
she had to leave and Dad saw his young.   :-*
A lil wet chicklet!

4.30 pm  Male has been in several times with a bloody rat, offers it. nope. takes it out again.  :D
I see another shell - hatch #2

Dad returns with snack. This time she takes it and feeds BOTH screaming hatchlings.

They are a nice pair. He is sooo attentive!
He keeps checking on her, vocalizing
Exchanges are frequent.
I wonder if this is the same pair as last year.
Behavior is a little different.

They are sooo pretty

Just got some screen shots of the 3 hatches.  Dad is very attentive.  He incubated the hatches while mom took a stretch.
What are baby Kestrels called?
