On Nov. 10, Rotary welcomed Marty Owen, from Sierra Wildlife Rescue, with an American Kestral, one of the more abundant birds of prey seen around El Dorado Hills. The Kestral is often referred to as a sparrow hawk, but is actually a member of the falcon family.
If you ever come across an injured wild bird or animal, do not approach it, instead call the Sierra Wildlife Rescue hotline (530) 621-4661.
