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.
