Kingston - Kestrels have to be one of the most difficult raptors to shoot. Their tolerance of approach is very low and since you need to get closer than with other raptors because of their small size, it makes it an even greater challenge (Sharp-shinned Hawks are fairly close in size but much easier to deal with). I moved up slowly with my car and managed to get a few shots that I cropped. Normally I quit before I even start – they are that difficult to deal with.
