American Kestrel Sighting

If you squint just right, you might be able to see that we spotted an American Kestrel while planting flower seeds one afternoon in the schoolyard habitat. First, we saw a hawk fly by, then we spotted the kestrel. We tried to sneak closer to get a better look, but it flew away. It didn't just leave though. It flew around in circles above the desert lot behind our school. We were able to see the beautiful field marks and interesting wing flapping technique. As we continue to make improvements to the schoolyard habitat, I hope we see more and more amazing wildlife stop by and hang out.
