This raptor, the American Kestrel ~ a small falcon also known as a Sparrow Hawk ~ is a resident of the Homosassa Springs Wildlife State Park. The park has many birds in its care, most of which have permanent wing injuries. I was happy to get the bird in focus instead of the fence!

From the Homosassa Springs Wildlife Park website:
“American Kestrel, a small falcon
Scientific Name: Falco sarverius
These raptors are found in fields and grasslands from Canada to Mexico and seem to have taken especially well to urban and suburban environments. Kestrels feed mainly on insects, bats, lizards, mice, small snakes and frogs.”
