The Lesser Kestrel – this brave, small, birds!

Oct. 10, 2023
Although they are birds of prey, the lesser kestrels are small and, at first glance, fragile creatures.
In nature they have many enemies - starting with the larger birds of prey and pass through the little Owl and the Beech marten, and ending with the Western jackdaw, and the Crows….
The Kestrels in the Wildlife rehabilitation and breeding centre – Green Balkans, but, hatched and released in the area, within the project “Life for the Lesser Kestrel” LIFE19 NAT/BG/001017, financed by programme LIFE of the EU, certainly they bravely defend their territory from intruders.
See in the video below how the young lesser kestrel “welcomes” a band of curious Eurasian magpie on their favorite place for rest!
