I did not know the Sparrow Hawk was a Kestrel! He is so darn quick in swooping in that all we see is this flash of copper/ brown from under his wings as he lifts up with a poor finches from the feeder. We haven't been able to identify exactly the kind of hawk he is - but I always said I thought he was a little falcon.
My first package arrived today - an eggbutt snaffle. I'm thinking I may use it for lower level dressage, she seems to like them better than the D rings. Hubby commented how pretty it was...gotta love that he thinks tack is pretty
