The decade-interval map illustrates low numbers of American Kestrels on CBC's in 1958, with a steady increase in numbers found per party-hour until 1988, then a notable drop to 1997. The low numbers in the '50's, increasing until the '90's, may well represent a comeback in numbers of kestrels following the banning of the use of the pesticide DDT in the 1960's.
