Valle de Oro NWR - habitat for American Kestrels

Brief description: 
Through phenology monitoring, Valle de Oro has learned that American Kestrels are abundant on the Refuge, more so than any other nearby place. The Refuge has become a popular place for birders and other visitors to see these birds. Because of this knowledge, the restoration plans for the Refuge have been altered to include more upland grassland habitat to support Kestrels.
