Kestrel on the wing

An American kestrel takes flight from a power line along a road near Dixonville, Ore., on Wednesday, Dec. 30, 2009. One of the most colorful birds of prey in the world, the American Kestrel is the most common falcon in North America.

The little kestrel is one of my favorite birds. I shot this with my Nikon D3 fitted with a 600mm f/4 and a 1.4x teleconverter.
