Female American Kestrel prefers to dine in private

I came across this beautiful lady on Wednesday just after she caught her dinner. I was hoping she would allow me to watch her eat but it appears she prefers to dine alone as she took flight, meal in hand, and headed off to a more private setting.

I’ve been seeing a lot of these little falcons lately, as we often do here in Colorado during the winter. They may be North America’s smallest falcon but they are just as fierce as any raptor.
