I never tire of photographing these handsome little falcons. I'm starting to think they actually like the paparazzi.

Description

Have good sighting but unable to get photo. This one is hanging near my feeders picking off mourning doves and small birds. Has been around for several days. He's just bigger than Am. Kestrel but considerably smaller than Cooper's. Older guide ID's as 'Pigeon Hawk'! Will add photo when I can.

Description from Wikipedia

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.

No range data available.
