The Common Kestrel is a small falcon that is found in Europe, Asia, and North Africa. They are the most common falcon in the world. Kestrels are usually around 12 inches in length and have a wingspan of about 24 inches. They weigh between 4 and 7 ounces. Kestrels have beautiful markings with a brown body, black wings, and a white tail. They also have blue eyes and a reddish-brown head.
Kestrels are predatory birds and eat mostly small mammals, such as mice, voles, and rabbits, as well as birds. They also eat insects, including dragonflies and grasshoppers. Kestrels usually hunt by hovering over their prey before swooping down to catch it. They can also catch prey by flying fast and then diving down onto it.
Kestrels are very versatile birds and can live in a variety of habitats, including forests, fields, deserts, and even urban areas. They typically build their nests in trees or on cliffs, but they will also use buildings or other structures for nesting.
