Kestrels on the Highway

Going on a major highway i saw a kestrel perched on the wires. There most common place to see a kestrel. Since it was on a major Highway it was more comfortable as we pulled up to it. I got to take some perched pictures and some cool pictures of it jumping off the wires. They are the prettiest birds, but definitely one of the hardest to get great pictures of.


  1. Again: nice pics!! I don't think I have ever seen pics of raptors' feet stretched out like these after take-off.
    Very remarkable shots!

  2. Boy, do I love kestrels! We are just getting ready to put up a kestrel nest box with a camera installed...I can't wait! You got some nice close ups!
