female, adult, winter plummage
This Eurasian kestrel was landing on the high-raised building where I stayed and looking for a prey near the sunset time. A poor bat was flying around there and got caught by this raptor and perching near a window (to consume) where I took this photo. The color might be more brown than this bird's true color. This is about the time for this kestrel return to the Northland.
