Sunday brunch.


American kestrel, near Blenheim sewage lagoons, Ontario, Canada, Feb 3, 2019.
We were out looking for short eared owls when we came across a red tailed hawk and a kestrel.
They were perched on the top of different solar panels having an afternoon snack.
No short eared owls.

Falco sparverius
It can be tough being one of the smallest birds of prey. Despite their fierce lifestyle, American Kestrels end up as prey for larger birds such as Northern Goshawks, Red-tailed Hawks, Barn Owls, American Crows, and Sharp-shinned and Cooper’s Hawks, as well as rat snakes, corn snakes, and even fire ants.
