A long-distance shot, a beautiful American Kestrel, with it's morning breakfast - a Vole it just captured. Small rodents are the largest critters that this small Falcon is able to catch.
This was taken at Pelham Bay Park, the bird was hunting in the Landfill area. This is where all the raptors can usually be found: soaring, hunting, and perching.
It is just such a cool and cute bird!
