American Kestrel (Falco sparverius) Science Article 14
This report assesses the biology and conservation status of the American kestrel (Falco sparverius) in the Black Hills National Forest of South Dakota and Wyoming. The goal of this assessment is to assimilate historical and current literature on the kestrel to provide managers and the general public an objective overview of this species’ status within the Black Hills. Peer-reviewed scientific literature was the primary information source used in this report, however unpublished federal and state government reports provided additional valuable insight.
