“North America’s littlest falcon, the American Kestrel packs a predator’s fierce intensity into its small body. It’s one of the most colorful of all raptors. Hunting for insects and other small prey in open territory, kestrels perch on wires or poles, or hover facing into the wind, flapping and adjusting their long tails to stay in place.”

Clue #5

“Just as hawks circle Holiday Beach, you’ll be circling back from whence you came! This spot is especially great for learning. You’ll find the final species around back.”
