Adopt Tula the American Kestrel
Tula was hatched in 2018 and was rescued after falling out of her nest as a nestling. She was held for several days by caring folks in Tularosa, New Mexico – hence, her name. She did not suffer from any long-term physical injuries, but after being kept in captivity during a critical period in her development, she imprinted on humans and thus would not be a good candidate for release into the wild. This means that she is bonded to humans for life and identifies with humans rather than with other kestrels—so much so that she can be very aggressive towards other American Kestrels. She is a wonderful Avian Ambassador and enjoys running Gail’s household, rightfully earning her the nickname “Princess Tula”!
