Lovely shots of the Kestrel, Rik~ As I recall, there used to be a nest in one of the white birch trees not far from the road. Is this the same nest location in Little America where you took your pix?

I was wondering the same thing. They used to nest right by the road and there was a nice pullout across the road to stop and get pictures from.

Rik, I forgot to mention how great the shots are. Really show how colorful those little guys are!

that looks like the same Aspen trees - and they have set up house on the opposite side of the tree you can see it from below if you want to walk down -just watch the mushy ground - been keeping an eye on them again this year
