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.

Falcons are medium sized birds of prey found all across the world although falcons tend to prefer the more temperate regions of the Northern Hemisphere.

One of my favorite birds, isn't he gorgeous? The smallest of the birds of prey, the American Kestrel

If I could be reincarnated into animal form, I would choose the peregrine falcon. I love birds of prey, and the flying abilities of this bird knock my socks off!

Don't know what bird of prey this is, still searching. Beautiful!
