An American Kestrel Falcon Catches An Earthworm As Big As Its Body

This day on a backcountry road in Nehalem, Oregon saw me capture this American Kestrel catching a worm as long as it's body, then getting my first red-tailed hawk catching and eating prey, and then later on in the day I went back during sunset came within feet of a peregrine falcon eating a bird. What a great birding day to say the least!!
