 a second kestrel
found this morning a bit later than yesterday
a bit more 
messed up
this feels like murder now.
not accident.
two kestrels, car collisions
same stretch of road.
this came after several days of finding
coyote scats all along here.
(looks like dog but is bursting with berry seeds.
i hear coyote chuckling.)
i'd rather dodge shit than face the deaths 
of these small fierce ones.

Maybe you don't have time--but two does feel like more than a coincidence--can you contact local bird society--? What would be causing them to be on the road in the first place? Curious and alarming.

very strange, I wonder if they were young or sick and not able to protect themselves. they are generally alert and quick.

ms & jean, my guess is they are youngsters and found good eating on the road. unfortunately the road in that spot is easy to speed on--
