Friday's Foto

Announcing her presence with a screeching "klee, klee, klee, klee", this American Kestrel stopped to perch atop a lamppost overlooking a vacant lot along Coney Island's boardwalk. She didn't show any concern for all the people walking below on a warm, sunny first day of the new year and instead focused on anything moving in the weedy field.

Personally, I think that the Kestrels are the prettiest of the American raptors, and I feel they would agree with me.

And God help you if you don't agree with them :-D
