Little Kestrels are actually our smallest falcons at approx. 10" long. Not much colour on perch, but when they take flight, and you get a shot of their backs, they are quite colourful.

You can tell its a male by the blue slate coloured wings and back.

Beautifully coloured bird. They are pretty great fliers as well. :)

You got that right Casil. We like to pertain to them as multi-directional missiles. Especially when you are trying to get an in-flight shot.:wall-an:
