California Kestrel? (1 Viewer)

Took this photo in the Los Angeles area. I think it's a Kestrel, but it was really big compared to other Kestrels I have seen. If it is, it is the largest Kestrel I have ever seen. Appreciate your ID and thoughts.
Thanks.

Hi,

I'd agree, it's an American Kestrel. Appearance of size can be very deceptive. Angle of view, lighting, points of reference etc can all give a false impression of size.

Cheers
