The American Kestrel is a small falcon most commonly found in North and Central America. This was taken on 2/6/10 at the Desert Museum located in Tucson, AZ. I was accompanied by some other fellow bubblers and it was a grand day!

A long-time passion, I’ve held a camera in my hand for as long as I can remember. Capturing “the moment” is my goal, whether it be people, wildlife or a beautiful Arizona sunset. I am originally from NYC but now live in the desert southwest.
Thank you for viewing my images… I hope that you enjoy!
