It was the first time I saw this Kestrel in this area, though I heard it from time to time. It was not flying , but was stubbornly standing on the high lamp-post, and did not care to move. So I knocked slightly on the post and... see the attached WS.

nice the snapshot with the kestrel to lay on the lamppost.I like the contrast with the blue sky as the complementary WS with the flying bird.
Have a nice afternoon,Danos

Very nice capture of the little bird, in such an unusual place, making a contrast of the nature with the elements of the city. Sharpness and colors are very good! Well done!

a beautiful shot of very lovely kestrel,
its characteristic face and pretty standing figure is well captured,
it is interesting to stand not on the tree but on the street lamp,
steel color and back blue sky make it so vivid,
thank you for your wonderful shot,

mi piace questo colpo d'occhio e l'ottima definizione con la quale hai ripreso l'uccellino sul lampione.
Perfetto lo sfondo azzurro del cielo,

I like the way this cute little Kestrel sitting on this lamppost as if it belongs to it. The clear blue sky makes a nice background. Excellent sharpness and colors.

It looks like a young Kestrel planning its next short flight.
You captured the bird really well & the lamp serves as a nice landing platform for the wild life in general.
Hope you had a nice weekend.

That kestrel was perched on a street lamp, it is amazing as it is not a bird usually living in urban areas, maybe it came here because of a lack of prey, nifty nature sight Ike, good sharpness
