Observation Time: 3:00 p.m.

Observation Location: Moose Hill Farm (TTOR)

Common Name: American Kestrel (a.k.a. sparrow hawk)

Scientific Name: Falco sparverius

Comments: This kestrel (a.k.a sparrow hawk) was in a tree by the big cow pasture. It flew down and disappeared in the grass. I think it might have caught a mouse. Then it flew off.

Kestrels are the smallest falcons. They are declining in parts of their range.
