2-4-16-tgo--kestrel

Balancing act - An American Kestrel surveys the goings-on from a powerline near Kooskia. The American Kestrel, also known as the sparrow hawk, is actually a small falcon. According to allaboutbirds.org, kestrels can see ultraviolet light, which enables them to observe the trails of urine that voles, a common prey mammal, leave as they run along the ground. “Like neon diner signs, these bright paths may highlight the way to a meal.” Kestrels are also known to hide surplus kills in grass clumps, tree roots, bushes, fence posts, tree limbs, and cavities, to save the food for lean times or to hide it from thieves. The oldest known American Kestrel was at least 14 years, eight months old. Photo by Ron Householder
