I'm having a senior moment trying to remember the identity of this bird. It looks like an American Kestrel to me, but I swear they never brought one out at the raptor show; I got several closeups of the kestrel on another visit, and I think I would have remembered them saying it. Still, that's what this looks like to me, so I guess my dementia is manifesting itself! Movement blur, obviously, as it flutters in to land and grab its treat.

NOTE: Erestorfan, you're likely right; I know there was a peregrine falcon, so despite the fact that this one doesn't match any shots on my google search, this could well be that one.

A moment well captured - I love the intense focus it has, the magnificent wingspread & the markings on it's head...

Could this be a Peregrine falcon? The size and colors would match that falcon.

Great shot!!!

Fab shot!
Provided you are not storing toilet rolls in the fridge I should think your brain is ok.

Great shot Denise!

For falconry purposes Peregrines are hybridised with many other falcon species (Saker falcons, Lanner falcons, Barbary falcons, Gry falcons, Laggar falcon are all possible hybridiseres). This produces some strange combinations I think this bird is either a true Barbary or a Barbary X Peregrine.

LOL @ Andrea! :)

This is a marvellous shot, no matter the bird's identity. Such beautiful coloring (and of course the plumage!).

Love the color and focus in this outstanding capture of the falcon(?), delighting the crowd as it spreads its beautifully patterned wings, Denise.

Mighty nice Denise...the motion blue enhances the image. I am sure this bird wasn't there very long. Love the detail, the bird's expression and the colors.
