Raptor facts

The American Kestrel has also been known as the American Sparrowhawk, but it is not a hawk It is one of the falcon family.
There are 16 sub-species ranging throughout America. Different colours occur but they are all undeniably stunning.
The same as our own Kestrel, they have moved into the urban environment using ledges and boxes to breed in. Their favoured nest sites however are always holes in trees.
