Lesser Kestrel

Falco naumanni

02.17.2011 - Seville, Spain
James photographed this pair of Lesser Kestrels perched on the low overhang of a local cathedral. Note the difference in plumage between the colorful male (left) and the drab, barred female (right). Though the species is undergoing a global population decline, Seville remains one of the best places in the world to view these beautiful birds.
