Story's for days! Today though, I watched a little Kestrel chase off an Osprey. Man are those birds spirited. Stoop after stoop, bopped it on the head at least 8 times, yanked it's tail feathers. Lots of fun to watch, plus it was one less bird I had to chase away!
Are we watching the same kestrel? I've seen a pair do the same thing to a pair of osprey that have taken up residence a little too close to the kestrels nesting area. Ferocious little birds for their size.
