This morning I arrived at Central Winds to find an on one of the goal posts of the football field. I saw the Kestrel fly off to terrorize some , so I took that opportunity to position myself in between the sun and the goal post, hopefully get shots of it returning with breakfast. It returned without a catch, but instead of landing on the goalpost, it swerved and landed on the goalpost on the other side of the field. The morning sunlight lit it pretty evenly as it turned, giving me one of m best Kestrel flight shots.

When nature calls, nestling kestrels back up, raise their tails, and
squirt feces onto the walls of the nest cavity. The feces dry on the
cavity walls and stay off the nestlings. The nest gets to be a smelly
place, with feces on the walls and uneaten parts of small animals on the
floor.
