American Kestrel (male) - Falco sparverius

It's been a long time since I've been able to get one of these birds to pose for me but Sunday morning proved to be the time to visit this little guy. He posed for at least a hundred pics on a wire right across the road from me without spooking. He lives close to my place so I'm gonna go check on him no and again through the winter and, hopefully, he'll come to accept me getting even closer. These are, hands down, my favorite raptors to photograph in the wild.
