gift from a neighborhood kestrel

this is truly fascinating.

it's like having an episode of Nature right in your backard.

I'm curious, did you see the kestrel?

when I first stumbled into it, still warm (no frost) in the back yard dirt, I guessed "cat". but then there were no tracks, and Kelly said she's seen a kestrel on the wire out the window earlier. (so much for my forensics)

... but then, this morning we saw her "kestrel" again, which turned out to be a coopers hawk, which makes more sense.

so, "how many city slickers does it take to identify a raptor?"
