Just when you thought it was over, Kestrelmania 2015 is back!
Governor's Island closed for the season at the end of September and my last visit there was rewarded with a long visit with the resident kestrel family.
Namely, the adult female:
She put on a show diving for grasshoppers.
And posing with other flying machines.
But the highlight came when she decided to settle on a rooftop with 1 World Trade in the background.
I spent several weeks with these kestrels, chasing them around the island, feeling lucky to get any shot of them in focus. So this really made my day.
Until next summer....
