The American Kestrels

Calvin is the male Kestrel. Notice his blueish grey wings.

Caleigh is the female. Notice her wings are the same color as her body.

We always know Calvin since he has one toe that turns up.

Caleigh brings home an insect.

These are the Kestrels that have nested and raised their young in our backyard. What is so interesting about the Kestrels are they develop real personalities.


  1. Excellent photos Carlos. I'm jealous of your yard! Thanks for sharing.

  2. Awesome pics - especially of Calvin on the fence post...beautiful!
