American Kestrel shows off for the camera

These are such cool little raptors – and beautiful. Males like this one in particular are quite colorful and handsome. This guy was hanging out on a utility wire, as they often do, keeping watch on a nearby field for a meal. He wouldn’t cooperate for any flights shots but did pose for a brief bit.

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. Taken in Adams County, Colorado.
