American kestrel makes a meal out of a mouse

Looks like some good eatin’, eh? 😉 When I share images of this awesome bird, I always say that despite its stature as North America’s smallest falcon, it is just as ferocious as any raptor, big or small. Here is some video proof as this male American kestrel quickly rips apart its prey.

It is a bit graphic but interesting to watch and an example of the life and death battles that go on in nature every day. I captured this video and pictures the day after Christmas.

One of my goals is to try to at least shoot a little bit of video every now and then to share with you as I do know video helps to tell the stories. Believe me, these won’t be National Geographic quality (haha!) but at least will be something new and different and provide a bit of ‘behind the scenes’ look at the pics I capture.
