Common Kestrel (Falco tinnunculus)                                                   Beautiful

Common Kestrel (Falco tinnunculus) is a bird of prey species belonging to the kestrel group of the falcon family Falconidae. It is also known as the European Kestrel, Eurasian Kestrel, or Old World Kestrel. It is widespread in Europe, Asia, and Africa.

I used to be really interested in raptors as a kid. And it all started with having a close encounter with a tame kestrel in Arizona.
