As you drive along the back roads of Loudoun and look along the telephone wires, you may very well see an American Kestrel. They love to hunt over fields for small rodents. They’re wonderful to see on the wing as they hunt and they are our smallest falcon.
Check out a great article that Gerry Hawkins wrote on the American Kestrel awhile back for our Habitat Herald newsletter and then try out our Kestrel word search puzzle. It’s good fun!
More puzzles on Loudoun wildlife and environment can be found in our Library.
