Summer 1998 -- A juvenile Eurasian Kestrel.  This species is slightly larger than the American Kestrel, has only a single (rather than double) dark facial stripe, and also differs somewhat in colouration.   Both species are found in open country, and can often be seen hovering over fields as they hunt.
