I took this photo of Arrow, an American Kestrel , at the Earth Day Expedition at Hawk Creek last April.
Perhaps the most colorful raptor in the world, the American Kestrel is the most common falcon in North America. It is found from Alaska to Tierra del Fuego, and in towns as well as wild lands.
Hawk Creek is a not-for-profit educational outreach and raptor rehabilitation facility in East Aurora, NY. The Earth Day Expedition this year will be held on April 18th, for more information please visit the Hawk Creek website.
Volunteers and birds from Hawk Creek can usually be found on the lower level at Walden Galleria in Buffalo Saturday afternoons at 1pm conducting their education and outreach program. They always turn heads!
Please visit ABC Wednesday for more takes on the letter "K".
