hand carved and painted Kestrel


The American Kestrel is the smallest member of the hawk family in North America. On the average, the American Kestrel is about 22-31 cm (9-12 in), with a wingspan of 51-61 cm (20-24 in) and a weight of 80-156 g. American Kestrel is readily identified by the two black stripes on its white face, its blue gray wings, and chestnut back and tail. The back is scattered with black spots while the tail is tipped with black as well. The American Kestrel has a short curved bill and short toes and legs. The female of this species is larger than the male and has streaking on her chest. The male Kestrel usually has spotting instead of streaking. The immature Kestrel is more similar to the adult female. As American Kestrels are very common, you can often see them in fields or by the roadside.
