Kestrels are easily one of my favorite birds. Besides the striking colors displayed by the male here, they have some fantastic falcon behavior to watch as well. Happily they are the most common falcon in North America so we get lots of chances to watch them!
Image Notes: Still experimenting with PhotoNinja as a RAW processor and increasingly impressed by what it can do! The image was actually taken in October, but I'm going with the title as I am ready for spring! ;-)))
