See larger American kestrel

The size of a mourning dove, this is the smallest American falcon. The sexes may be distinguished by wing color: females with barred rufous wings, males with gunmetal blue. Kestrels nest in old woodpecker holes and nest boxes and are often seen hovering or perched in open habitats hunting for insects, lizards and rodents.
