One Year Ago – American Kestrel

American Kestrel (male)

Last year on April 2nd, I went to Vassar Farm to continue learning how to use my current camera.  I had gotten it in March 2010 and only took it out a few times prior.  It was a great day filled with snake and turtle sightings, and also a sight I won’t forget anytime soon.

On my way back from the eco ponds, I spotted this male American Kestrel with a fresh catch.  I watched him devour the snake and take off minutes later.  I took pictures through the entire meal.

Over the next few months, I plan to post a few more of these ‘One Year Ago’ entries.  I started this blog in June 2010, so there is a gap between April & May that I took photos and never posted them on here.  It also helps for days like today where I’m not feeling all that good and probably won’t capitalize on the nice weather.
