Kestrels have come back to our area in abundance. Seeing them more and more every day.


Liked this one for the blurred movement in the wings. They are so quick to flight, and so small, making them a difficult catch.

They are of the falcon family, right? Look small, though ... wonderful catch in flight, HBG.

Love the wing movement in that second one.

I really like the first one - so very typical a perch for these guys. Nicely done.

I love Kestrels and Falcons ... a cute little raptor. You are lucky HBG ... I've never positively identified one in the wild myself.
