Artist's Description

From the top of an evergreen, a female Kestrel watches for any movement below. American Kestrels more frequently hunt stationary from a high perch, rather than hovering. They can be seen hovering when there is a lack of favorable perches and or when winds are strong enough to create favorable updrafts. American Kestrels feed on large insects, reptiles, mammals, amphibians, and birds.

The American Kestrel is likely the most colorful raptor in the world and is the most common in North America!
