Kestrel vs. Hawk

In what is becoming a daily routine, as the resident RTH's patrol their territory the male kestrel rises to vigourously defend it. This doesnt seem to deter the RTH's from moving through but when the kestrel attacks, they do take notice. I spotted the male hunting outside his nest late yesterday.

In a flash, he was off!

This starling hightails it outta there!

And the kestrel escorts the RTH off it's turf!
