I forgot to include this cutie in my earlier posts about the birding event last weekend. This is an American Kestrel. This tiny falcon is often seen perched on powerlines. I spied one in my backyard earlier this winter, feasting on a smaller bird. The males, like the one above, have blue on their feathers and beak. These birds are excellent mousers.
What a beautiful bird !! :)ReplyDelete
we have big ole birds on power poles here, but nothing as pretty as this one.ReplyDelete
He is a beauty, we have kestrels here in Yorkshire, but i would need a bigger lens to ever catch a wild one.ReplyDelete
