The Little Bird with a Big History:

The Story of Wisconsin’s Kestrel Population By: Christa Droste
Wisconsin Chapter of the Society for Conservation Biology

Frances Hamerstrom, the only female graduate student of Aldo Leopold, is highly regarded for her work to protect the Greater Prairie Chicken (Tympanuchus cupido) from extirpation in Wisconsin. But what you might not know is that Fran was also critical in the recovery of the American Kestrel (Falco sparverius) population.

the purpose of this page is to provide recording of past Aldo Leopold Audubon programs and other Internet sites concerning the environment.
