Location: Honeymoon Island State Park, FL
While hiking back to see a bald eagle nest, we spotted this kestrel on a branch. It posed for quite a while before flying off. Unfortunately when we arrived at the eagle nest, the male had just flown away after dropping off a fish and the female was incubating eggs and was deep in the nest. Despite waiting almost two hours, we never saw any activity.
