    Despite being the smallest bird of prey in North America, the American Kestrel is a fierce and specialized predator. Like other birds, the kestrel can see ultraviolet light. This allows it to see urine trails left by rodents. It is like seeing a neon trail to their prey. This is one of the many interesting facts about the most colorful and smallest bird of prey in North America. They can be seen perched on signs and other man-made objects near the Tumey, Panoche, and Griswold Hills.
