Raptor Wednesday

This is, approximately, what the chapel looks like from the road.
The point here is that the female American Kestrel up there saw a two-inch long grasshopper on the road and swept down to pluck it right up. She flew back up to the chapel top to dispatch it.
Same bird, nearby.
Further afield in Green-Wood: a female who had just finished eating something and then stropping her bill.

I think I saw four separate kestrels this day, unless they were following me…
Here’s a male.
