Male American Kestrel hops into the skies

These little falcons are very cool – but also quite skittish. It takes a lot of patience to get pics of them and even then, they don’t make it easy. I happened across this handsome guy on Friday and he soon showed his distaste for having his picture taken. Thankfully I managed this capture just as he departed for the camera-free zone.

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.
