Just had a first for me..
I witnessed an adult male American Kestrel take a Northern Cardinal at my ground feeder.
I normally lose small birds to the Sharp-shinned and Cooper's Hawks that seem to frequent my feeding area. However I rarely see American Kestrels in my yard or near my residence and to witness this was a surprise for sure.
