These images of grey kestrels show the tail extends beyond the wingtips, one of the features that distinguish it from the sooty falcon. The immatures (upper two photos: left, Lake Manyara, 6-06; right, Tarangire, 3-08) have a brown wash but are otherwise similar to adults. Juveniles show blue skin around the eye (see slideshow photo #2). The 2nd row adult in flight was seen in Katavi (10-10), courtesy of Steve Windels. The left 3rd row flight photo (Ukerewe Island, 6-17) is courtesy of Leif Rydell. All the other photos were taken in Tarangire. Click the photo above to see 16 enlargements.
