Wow! This morning, I was almost hit by... a kestrel! What an incredible sight. He flew right across my path, probably missing me by about 2 feet, and then processed to fly alongside me for what felt like a mile, but was probably 10 feet or so. What a way to start the day. I've had owls fly alongside me a couple of times, but that's always been at dusk (not that it's not still an incredible sight), but that's the first time I've seen a kestrel so close.
