Also, American Kestrel's are North America's smallest *falcon*. This is a Buteo... looks like a Swainson's Hawk to me, too, a light-morph adult.

For a size comparison, here is a photo of an American Kestrel attacking a Swainson's Hawk:

Think this is a Swainson's Hawk. Seems too large for a Kestrel which aren't much bigger than a robin. Its surprising a kestrel is so small.

The markings on this bird aren't quite right either.
