Adopt Sparrow the American Kestrel




Sparrow was hatched in the wild in New Mexico during the 2019 nesting season. He was found with a collapsed right eye. We don’t know why his eye is collapsed; it could be a congenital defect or possibly the result of an attack or an impact injury. Sparrow is named after one of the most common prey items of wild kestrels: sparrows! ¬†Also, American Kestrels were once known as Sparrow Hawks. He is one half of a bonded pair with Azulito.
