Default American Kestrel

This little American Kestrel hangs out on the campus I teach at in Jackson, WY. It's a magical spot for me - I've seen foxes, bears, hawks, porcupines, moose, elk, pine martins and mule deer, all within several hours on the same day while just hanging out in the lower canyon...
