3 individuos perchando en Cocus nucifera
I found this bird on July 19,2014. Yesterday I was able to get this
poor quality photo. Hope it's good enough to get confirmation on the ID.
There was a nest in the Jeffrey Pines up the slope from our camp. I thought that it was an adult fishing but when I saw the picture at home, I saw that it could have been a juvenile.

For the morning of the 27th, we had Emil as our guide around the Kavadarci area. We were very lucky to get contact with him through our hotel, which gets birders all the time.
Our first destination of the morning was the town of Marena, just a couple of kilometers away from Kavadarci, where we saw quite a few Lesser Kestrels perched atop the houses and on the wires.
The order Falconiformes is a group of about 290 species of birds that contains the diurnal birds of prey. The Falconiformes have long been thought to represent a natural evolutionary grouping, but three recent studies of their DNA suggest that their similarities are convergent. In each study, falcons are related to songbirds and parrots, and the hawks, eagles, and vultures are closer to woodpeckers and kingfishers.
