Prairie Falcon spreads its wings

This young falcon has become a bit of a fixture this winter in an area I frequently visit looking for raptors.

Unlike most Prairie Falcons, he / she is usually willing to sit and pose for at least a few pictures before invariably heading off to a more private location. Yesterday such was the case and as it launched into the air, it look flight allowing me to capture this image of it nearly directly overhead.

These birds are found across much of the western United States and Mexico. They prefer to dine on smaller birds, oftentimes diving right into flocks and snatching their prey. Someday I hope to capture that bit of action.
