One of my favorite photo "sessions" from a recent trip to Cape May, New Jersey. We started the day with an epic moment, watching thousands of warblers, flickers, raptors and other birds fly through Higbee Beach to fuel up before crossing the bay. We ended at the Meadows right before sunset where this Kestrel (and others) kept making attempts at the scads of Palm Warblers hiding in the dunes. This Kestrel eventually settled on catching crabs for easy eating. We watched her until the crab disappeared and she flew away.
