American Kestrel

Kestrels are often called "sparrow hawks" although they belong to the same family as other falcons.  They are colorful and plentiful, often seen on power lines watching for prey...


I have found them to be very shy, rarely allowing even a single photograph before taking flight...


            If you are able to view these beautiful birds consider yourself among the luckiest of nature lovers.
