I was washing lettuce in the sink around 4:30p when a dark fast blur zoomed by the window then a Mourning Dove took off in a tan blur in the opposite direction. Then I saw the dark blur-a male Kestrel. This is a wooded area overlooking a creek and forested bottomland. This Kestrel must have been real hungry. Closest I have seen one around here is about 1/4-1/2 mile out along Veterans Parkway or near hayfield along Jefferson Street. We have lived here since 2004. Rhetta Jack, Springfield, IL
