Many raptors can be seen at Fort Desoto Park, the Yellow Stone of Florida. Let’s have a look at a couple of them…
I often find that the easiest way to spot birds of prey is to be attentive to their squawking. Ospreys and Red-shouldered Hawks have very distinctive calls for instance. Then follow them for a while and see where their preferred resting area seems to be located. Hopefully, it is low enough and without vegetation obstruction. 🙂
Now the American Kestrel is a much tougher one to get close to. Plus, it seems to fly away pretty quick… Perseverance and patience are the only ways I know of!
