‘Kestrels’

You’ve probably seen them

I think it was the coloration of the male that made me fall in love with this little falcon. The head and wings are a bluish gray, the back and breast are a contrasting buffy orange, spotted with black, and the head has distinctive markings of black on white giving the appearance of sideburns and a mustache. He is a handsome fellow! The female, as with so many bird species, is not so bold instead sporting mostly tan feathers marked with black. The American Kestrel is about the same size as a Mourning Dove.
