American Kestrel (Falco sparverius) User: Brian Morin  (See all photos - 1413)
Canada (Ontario) St. Rose - I have commented before that this species is our most difficult hawk to photograph because it is small and never allows us to approach close enough for a decent shot. This bird broke the rules, permitting me to get a nice view from the car without disturbing it. I am not fond of taking shots of birds on power lines but I will make an exception in this case.

Males are notoriously hard to approach so this was a first close shoot for me. Sometimes females will be a bit more cooperative.
