American Kestrel

Whenever I can, I walk a 5K stretch of beach for exercise. During the winter months, I often see an American kestrel hunting the dunes for prey. My first kestrel sighting for this year was on November 7th and I have brought my camera along with me since in hopes to capture a photo or two.

Here are a few photos I took of the kestrel perched …

… and here are a few photos of it on the wing:

Seeing this American kestrel from time-to-time makes my beach walks even more special!


  1. fantastic shots, neat you get to observe it so much.


  2. Yes, the kestrel adds something extra to a walk that I suspect is special in and of itself.
