Kestrel (again probably).

Two drawings, but only one got to stick around. The North American kestrels is one really amazing bird. I’ll call it a good day, regardless of the outcome if I spot a Kestrel while about in the world.

I sketched this one out yesterday after finishing the crow/raven. I rather like this approach. I found that some of my earlier attempts at this species looked like pigeons with war paint. Now there’s nothing wrong with a warrior pigeon, just not quite what I was after. However this one rings truer for me anyway.

I spotted a Kestrel last Tuesday, riding my bicycle back to work carrying a backpack full of hamburgers....true story.

One more on my ever shifting list of favorite raptors to sketch.
