Its behaviour was as if it threw us a challenge. "catch me if you can". This little falcon, an American Kestral was perched characteristically on overhead wires which bordered an open field. We had stopped our truck at our approach and as it became aware of our approaching presence, it would veer off in an arc, over the field and return to the wires again just a bit further distance from us. It never flew far and continued to return to the wires each time. If I opened the truck door the sound beeping that a door had opened would chase the Kestral off.. It is always difficult to get a picture of a Kestral, but one advantage is that they are fairly predictable and often remain in the same location where they are seen. We had seen this bird last week and we expected to see it in the same place today and we did!. Hopefully I will get many more photos of this handsome little falcon as the season progresses.
