WOW!!! As soon as I saw it, even before I read the title I KNEW this was based on a kestrel. You got the beak down perfectly! It's so hard to get that shape. And you even got the malar stripe. Gorgeous gorgeous.

Hmmm, how did I know that you might figure it out? lol Thanks so much!! We have been taking a ton of pictures lately and have been trying to get a good one of the male kestrel. Have a few of the female, but they are flighty and do not enjoy getting their picture taken. I decided to make the mask, love their coloring!! Hope things are good!
