Thank you! I'm looking forward to more spottings and photo ops.

I don't know how all of your images slipped past me over the last year! You have a beautiful collection!

This is a great shot, Steve! This is an American Kestrel though, not a Common Kestrel (they're European). I'd love you to add this (and your other Raptor spottings) to the mission Raptors of North America:
