What Bird is this ?

American Kestrel.

On a quick trip to the wooded swamp,
this bird caught my eye. It flew quickly
to a distant perch. I thought at first it
might a dove because of the way it flew. 
But then it was to big to be a dove. I noticed
the colors, very beautiful. I though it was
way to far away for my camera and lens
I said what the heck why not try. Nothing
ventured nothing gained so I started
snapping off four pictures. The first is
without cropping the second is cropped.
