A juvenile American Kestrel, photographed during a rescue by CPF volunteers. Though much smaller in size, kestrels are often mistaken for peregrines, especially during the breeding season, when some people believe they might be young peregrines due to their smaller stature (in reality, by the time they are fully feathered, young peregrines are LARGER than their parents!).
