American Kestrel enjoys lunch on the Great Plains

I happened to spot this guy just as he landed on a utility wire with his meal. Much to my pleasure, he didn’t mind me taking pictures while he ate. A great time for me and the Kestrel but probably not so much so for the mouse. 😉

These birds are the smallest falcon in North America averaging about 8 inches long. Don’t let their size fool you though. They are as much of an effective predator and just as vicious as any raptor.
