The staff realized that this bird was actually a young American kestrel, which is a smaller breed of falcon which originated in Europe. American kestrels have luckily, already adapted themselves to live within the hustle and bustle of city urbanity in comparison to their European counterparts.
The woman named the young Kestrel Viktor, meaning ‘winner’ in Latin. How suitable!
However, Viktor had no home – until a kind-hearted feathered pair residing in Raptor Rehab decided to act as his foster parents.
The two resident adult falcons named Jack and Pinky Lee delicate their life to adopting young chicks in need, raising them until they become independent enough to fend for themselves! Thanks to his rescuer, Viktor has a new life, away from the streets!
