American Kestrel


I came across this Kestrel last week while driving along the Causeway to Antelope Island and wondered if it was the old banded Kestrel I had often seen but when I got closer, the raptor didn't have a band.  I wonder where the old Kestrel is now and if I'll ever see him again?

By the way, male American Kestrels are the most beautiful of all predators!

Generally, life is good.
