My wife asked me to come look at the pretty bird on the top of our pine tree. I grabbed my D500 and 500mm f5.6 PF lens hurried through the house to get to the deck. I only got off a few shots before it dove off of the opposite side of the tree and flew away. After downloading I noticed it was banded.

What a beautiful falcon. Maybe next time I can get more than the back side.

Enjoy,
Steve

Nice shots Steve

Fantastic images of a beautiful raptor. The American kestrel and the crested caracara are on my bird photography bucket list.

I think this is as big as they get but it could be a young adult. I looked on line for ID and found photos that match but they didn't have descriptions.
Thanks for looking.
Steve
