American Kestrel

by Drew Panko

This female American Kestrel flies off perch to catch a moth at Pound Ridge Reservation in Westchester County, NY.  She was later seen retrieving a small mammal from the middle of the sanctuary road.  The mammal was placed there by a male Kestrel just a split second before.   April 1, 2009.
