Driving along the levee beside the Mississippi River, I spotted an American Kestrel perched on a power line, hunting for insects and small prey. It is a small and colorful member of the falcon family.

Thank you, Belinda!
What a great sighting and photo!
Thanks! I usually see mourning doves, but on this day, the kestrels had them outnumbered.
