The Visitor

"American Kestrel Hawk"   8" x 10"   Watercolor

This little hawk appeared outside my studio window the other day.  After some research (thank you Deb and Paula!), we determined it to be a juvenile female American Kestrel Hawk.  She was obviously newly fledged and appeared a bit unsteady and unsure of her next move, as she perched on a rooftop just below our apartment.  She stayed around for quite some time before gaining confidence to fly to a nearby tree and then off to parts unknown.
