Deceptively Fierce Falcon

American Kestrel at the Horicon Marsh

Juvenile American Kestrel

This little cutie is actually a fierce predator.  The American Kestrel is North America’s smallest falcon.  It is one of the most colorful of all raptors.  This juvenile was perched along Highway TW near Dike Road.

Hundreds of Canada Geese spent a lazy Sunday afternoon in farmer’s fields surrounding the Horicon Marsh today.  Red-winged Blackbirds perched in shrubs and Sandhill Cranes strolled alongside the geese. Signs of spring are slowly arriving at the Marsh.
