American Kestrel - with Carol last weekend
A short drive with Carol had an amazing experience with an American Kestrel. We saw the bird as we were driving down a back road. Staying in the car we pulled over and were surprised by the calling of the kestrel. You could see he was upset but we could see nothing nearby. Looking for a fox, coyote or another hawk but this little guy was bouncing up and down. He finally went deep into the branches and came up with a feather and piece of meat. Must have fallen out of his talen while on the hydro line. make sure you enlarge these shots to see the colours.
