American Kestrel

Falco sparverius

Description:

Small falcon, slightly larger than an American Robin. This is a female and therefore has a little more brown. The eye bars are distinct along with its size.

Habitat:

Found in both North and South America.

Notes:

Normally this spotting would go under pets because you can see that she is captive. However, she had recently been his by a vehicle and had surgery. She was wild and will never fly again. She is currently located in the Pocatello zoo.

Yes I would love to become a falconer and begin with a Kestrel.
