American Kestrel in November

I am taking an extra day to give thanks and so there is no "This week in birds" post today. The regular post will return next week.

Meantime, here is a picture of one of my favorites to hold you until then. 

The little American Kestrel, smallest and surely the prettiest of all our falcons, visits this area in large numbers during late fall and winter.


  1. Great photo Dorothy. I don't think I've ever seen one of these birds. I hope you had a lovely Thanksgiving.

    1. They are small birds and might be overlooked but they are out there, usually on utility wires or posts in fall and winter.

      I had a wonderful Thanksgiving and hope you did, too!
