Birding - American Kestrel


“The hawk with talent hides its talons”

American Kestrel - While birding the last several days I have seen several American Kestrels.   The American Kestrel is the smallest falcon in North America.  Most Kestrels breeding in Canada and in the Northern United States migrate south for the winter, but some are year long residents and do not migrate.

One year we had a couple nest on the edge of our property. I've always wished that they had come back. Merry Christmas!
