Kestrel Falcon

Here is a Kestrel Falcon, which is another bird of prey. The coloring on these birds is so beautiful. 

This Falcon is being rehabilitated at Liberty Wildlife, which is a rescue center for true wildlife. 

You can see more about the rescue center and recent releases by clicking

Kudos to the volunteers that do so much for these animals.

What a beautiful shot. Thanks for the drapery update. I have a friend who rehabilitates birds of prey in his house and his barn. His children are named Kestrel and Cooper after hawks. They are fabulous kids, not the least bit predatory.

I met today kestrel. Kestrel was chasing two pigeons. I don't know why.

Well -- I've send some of my photos from Thursday to photobucket. Here is a kestrel:

I see these in my backyard quite often, looking for the little birds that frequent the fountain. I agree, the coloring is beautiful.

Beautiful photo. I've not seen one close up. We did see one hovering over the beach by the lakefront in Chicago - they actually hover like a helicopter.

Gorgeous creatures. So many of us never get the chance to see one up close.

What a picture, it really shows the real beauty of these birds of prey. They have a hawk that flies round Trafalgar square ( in central London) to keep away the pigeons. I would have loved to see this Falcon up close.
