After Colin whined so much about the temperature drop between the desert below and and mountains around Flagstaff, I am not going to pick "white as snow" as today’s color. I’ll pick the blue-grey of the American Kestrel’s wings instead. When we entered the Arizona Sonora Desert Museum, this beautiful bird of prey was presented by a handler in the "meet an animal" ramada next to the entrance. A Kestrel is a relatively small hunter, just a little bigger than the average city dove. The male is extremely beautifully colored – you really need to look at the picture gallery of today.
