Wow!! An American Kestrel

American KestrelBirding at home is all about watching and observing what’s outside your window.  I was sitting next to the window over the weekend and something caught my eye.  I looked out and in the distance over the field a bird was hovering over something.  I watched it fly to one of the small evergreens in field and perch on the top.  I ran and got my camera because I couldn’t identify what type of bird it was without a closer look.  While I was setting up the camera, the bird flew to another evergreen even closer than the first one.  I was able to capture the shot below and identify it as an American Kestrel!!  This is a beautiful bird of prey – a falcon.  Another bird for my life list!!
