Australian Kestrel or Nankeen Kestrel (Falco cenchroides)

Australian Kestrel or Nankeen Kestrel (Falco cenchroides)

Description:

A small, slim falcon (about 31 to 35 centimetres/12 to 14 inches long), the Nankeen Kestrel is rufous or brown above and white or off-white below, with a black tail tip. Plumage varies considerably in detail, and some birds can look very scruffy, but the slim build, small size and distinctive straight-winged hovering habit make identification easy.

Notes:

Gheppio Australiano, Castel Hill, Townsville, North/Est QLD, AU
