For most people in the United States the American Kestral is a year around bird. Here in South Florida it isn't seen until the "winter" months approach. Now that the days have been cool, kestrals are literally everywhere! On my one birding day this weekend alone I must have seen 2 dozen kestral. At one little pull over I could count 3 without even using my binoculars. It's definitely a welcoming sight to have these little raptors back around.
