The American Kestrel

by Wauer, Roland


Roland Wauer calls the American Kestrel our best known and most appealing bird of prey. Adaptive and resourceful, kestrels live in city parks and along highways, as well as in wild lands from treeline in northern Alaska to the very tip of South America.

Blending scientific research with easily understood interpretations, Wauer covers topics such as the falcon's keen eyesight, the unique eye spots on the back of its head, and the vocalizations it uses to communicate. Throughout this book, Wauer balances the breadth of his research with personal narratives. The mixture of hard science and personal stories makes for compelling reading. The reader of this nice little book will learn why our kestrel is such an attractive raptor and a favorite to many bird lovers.
