Friday Bird Blogging: American Kestrel
Kestrels are small colorful falcons which can be seen throughout the US. They're a little smaller than a pigeon in length, and considerably smaller in overall size. They hunt through a variety of fashions, including an approach similar to a kingfisher, which involves hovering over prey and then diving straight down to grab it. Though this isn't their most common form of hunting, it's by far the most entertaining to watch.
