Peneireiro-vulgar, Common Kestrel

(Falco tinnunculus)

in general this species does not allow close approach,even worse when you're going by car... very territorial living in couples they use to take of as soon as you get closer... today I saw it so close the same serious look he done to me...

Have a good weekend and thanks for looking ...

Hello there Dr. Jose Diogo,
It has been a few days now since your last presence on this site.
This one is a true beauty!!!
Greetings from Mario in Canada.

Very nice portrait, sharp and with a nice eye highlight. You may be able to lighten up its right hand side just a bit in photoshop.
