I have many - but there are not many of those cute pictures you're looking for. I seriously hunt my birds - I'll see if I can find some new ones to post but are we opening up another can of worms here??

I think there needs to be more "serious hunting" shots of Kestrels, personally. That's not to say I don't enjoy adorable pictures of pretty much any raptor (or any animal for that matter), but finding quality shots of Kestrels in action is a mite bit difficult.

Nice pics, guys, geep 'em coming! Ryan and/or Isaac, what resolution are your shots, and do you have any others? I've been searching for a good pic for my background on my laptop, and some of the ones you posted would be absolutely amazing!

No action shots, but a few at home! Top 2 are Eddie, haggard and bottom one is Chipper, passage. Notice the difference in color of cere and feet and the chest.

Here are some fresh pictures from today. She caught this snake and it started wrapping around the her leg and the neck mount transmitter. I was across the field and my girlfriend was next to the catch and she was not sure what to do so she just took pictures. LOL
I finally got there and switched the lure with the snake and the snake seemed to be playing dead. I put it in the bushes and about 20 min later it was gone. I guess it made it away safe.

Being a pre-apprentice noob, I have nothing to offer but encouragement. I love images of birds of prey of all types, but the Kestrel is at the top of my list. Great work!

These are the kind of kestrel pics I like to see! Personally I'm a little tired of kestrels being thought of as cute. I bet they don't think of themselves as cute!boxingg
