Beautiful closeup! What a cute bird -- I feel like he's staring me down!! I love his/her spots -- I think that means s/he's still under a year old or something??

Congrats on the AC!

Kestrels are so cool. I like the way they flutter/hover before they dive.

Thanks folks! And yes they are quite common out here in the country. I usually see them surveying the fields from power lines.

About backwardguy

backwardguy

My wife of 40 years and I live in Hermiston OR. on a 5 acre "farmette". I have been an elementary school teacher for the last 26 years. I enjoy the outdoors and animals and I'm an avid (not a good) golfer. My wife and I take our motorcycles on long trips and our destinations are almost always the beautiful National parks in Oregon, California, Montana, Idaho, Wyoming, Washington, Utah, and last summer we added Arizona to the list. Photography has long been an interest of mine and many of my photos are taken on our little farmette, and on our motorcycle trips.
