Subject: KESTREL AND PRAIRIE VOLE AT WOOLSEY
We watched American Kestrels yesterday at Woolsey Wet Prairie Wildlife Sanctuary in Fayetteville , including at least one bird making several dives into tall grass and coming up with small mammal prey. Vivek Govind Kumarís eBird checklist is here: https://ebird.org/checklist/S79150252<https://nam11.safelinks.protection.outlook.com/?url=https%3A%2F%2Febird.org%2Fchecklist%2FS79150252&data=04%7C01%<7Carbird-l...>%7Cd9c7de06fcfd410db00508d8b8128154%7C79c742c4e61c4fa5be89a3cb566a80d1%7C0%7C0%7C637461736908126620%7CUnknown%7CTWFpbGZsb3d8eyJWIjoiMC4wLjAwMDAiLCJQIjoiV2luMzIiLCJBTiI6Ik1haWwiLCJXVCI6Mn0%3D%7C1000&sdata=GITaX1%2FPYVng%2BnpC97CnY93iH7rLH%2F0aRfj4Qs2pxN8%3D&reserved=0>. It includes several kestrel photos, including one with a small mammal it had just caught. I got some assistance in identifying the mammal from JD Willson, Kris Forbes and his student Nathaniel, at UA-Fayetteville. The mammal is a Prairie Vole (Microtus ochrogaster).
