  3. Like that last one Gary. The Kestrel is so special and sleek as a falcon should be. I wish I would see more of them. This is a nice series.
  4. Thanks Lou

    I'm going to work this spot a while for some In-flight and watch the chick grow.

    Love #3 outstanding, Kestrel's are a very nervous bird, Great shots of a "hard" target.

    Jaw dropping that you found this.
    You lucky duck

    Fantastic is all i can say

    I never knew they nested in a hole in a tree!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
  15. Thank You Jeff

    They are difficult to get close to and like most birds you have to let them come to you
  16. Thank You Gale

    I call it scouting and watching for patterns. I believe they have used a old woodpecker hole
