Female Kestrel West of Cochrane

The American Kestrel is the smallest falcon.  They are fascinating to watch, but their quick movements make them hard to capture!!  So colorful, the male’s have a slate-blue head and wings with rusty-red back and tail; the female has the same warm reddish on her wings, back, and tail.
