American Kestrel In Flight

Post on May 29, 2012 American Kestrel BirdsRaptor


This is the only Kestrel in flight i managed to capture. They are fast and very skittish but this one didn’t mind my present from a vehicle. It perched on top of branches while preying then took off against the wind, which slowed down the launch, and that really helped in acquainting focus. It was windy that noon.
