SkyWatch & Friday's Feathers: American Kestrel

or, "Fruit & Feathers II"

Once again, I've combined my SkyWatch and my Friday's Feathers post.

Today's Friday's Feathers belong to the American Kestrel:

Another fine South Florida February morning during last weekend's Great Backyard Bird Count.

I'm suffering "mango envy". This is my next-door neighbor's tree. Mine has about half as much fruit and half the size. Waaaah.

Please click on the photos for a way better look.

Don't forget to check out more SkyWatch images here. And for more Friday's Feathers, click here.

Happy Weekend!
