Our trip a few years ago in August

Not sure how useful this is as we were in California in August but there a few places that might be worth a look, suggest you read from Point Reyes onward.

Think you are right

We saw male Fox Kestrel in flight and this juv Kestrel perched nearby in same area of Jemma valley, think I must have labelled it without looking. Thanks
