The American Kestrel, sometimes colloquially known as the Sparrow Hawk, is a small falcon, and the only kestrel found in the Americas. It is the most common falcon in North America, and is found in a wide variety of habitats
American Kestrel. Perhaps the most prodigous small predator. They're incredibly fast, in a dive they can exceet two hundred miles per hour. And their vision is superb, into the intrared and untraviolet spectrums, too.
The wonderful colors of this bird - American Kestrel by Bob Jensen - sing a quiet song that would make a perfect scarf for a man or a tailored scarf, shawl, jacket or hat for a woman. I love this bird!
