Mick and Red - thanks much and thanks for stopping in!
Arija - I think the small size is part of their allure. Thanks for your comment.
LNMP - me either. I don't see them around here much, though. I saw them much more when I lived in Illinois.


Just gorgeous! I never tire of seeing kestrals. :)


I've never seen so small a raptor before. He is just the cutest and definitely in safe hands.


Nice colors! Pretty bird :)


Great photo of a beautifully colored bird.

Chad - I think so too. Their colors are great.
RightBlue - he was neat, paying attention to his handler. Thanks for your visit.
Lana - a painting would be great. LMK when you do!


I love kestrels. Such beautiful colors. They're on my "to paint someday" list.

The Right Blue

What a dear little bird. He looks so alert!


Absolutely beautiful. I think these are my favorite little raptor.

  • Our eyes and ears should be open and alert to the natural wonders that surround us every day. Take time to look out our windows to see the birds that visit us and open our windows to hear them. Walk around whatever space we have to enjoy the birds in nature. Every day, work on improving our powers of observation.


  • Nature happens. We cannot MAKE natural things happen (or NOT happen). We can create habitats to encourage natural things to happen around us, but there are no guarantees.


  • Birdfeeding comes with responsibilities to the birds and the environment we share with them. If you are unwilling to accept these responsibilities, you shouldn’t feed the birds. We also have a responsibility to share these natural wonders with the next generation.
