So I was walking around outside observing the new snow we have just received, when I noticed a rather large bird land on the top of a cedar tree about 30 yards away from me. It looked much larger than any pigeon or birds we have around here regularly, but smaller than a Red-tail Hawk, so I had no idea what it was. I was so surprised when I discovered that it was in fact an American Kestrel. I see these around very rarely but never near my house, so I was extremely and pleasantly surprised.
I didn’t get any “Great” pictures, as he did not stay for long, but I was just happy to see one on our property.
It was a real treat to see this bird in our yard, and I hope he stays around for awhile.
If you are a photographer – What have you wanted to photograph for awhile, and finally was able to?
If you are not a photographer – What goals have you set for yourself and finally achieved?
