American kestrel

Falco sparverius


A small falcon; this one is a female.


This one was a wildlife rescue; they were sheltering her until her tail feathers came back in. I believe she came from the Willamette Valley of Oregon.


Despite being a wild bird only temporarily in a shelter, this bird was remarkably quiet around people. It's not hard to see the potential relationship between falcons and people.
