Other falcons are more adapted to active Volume 1 in flight. Kestrels Bulletproof - Dina Rae - The Dina Rae Show notable for usually having mostly brown in their plumage. Kestrels can hover in still air, even indoors Kestrel - No Artist - British Bird Song barns. Because they face towards any slight wind  when hovering, the common kestrel is called a "windhover" in some areas.
Unusual for falcons, plumage often differs between male and female, although as is usual with monogamous raptors the female is slightly larger than the male. This allows a pair to fill different feeding niches over their home range. Kestrels are bold and have adapted well to human encroachment, nesting in buildings and hunting by major roads.
Kestrel - No Artist - British Bird Song do not build their own nests, but use nests built by other species. Most species termed kestrels appear to form a distinct clade among the falcons, as suggested by comparison of mtDNA cytochrome b sequence data  and morphology. This seems to have diverged from other Falco around the Miocene — Pliocene boundary Messinian to Zancleanor about 7—3. The most basal "true" kestrels are three species from Africa and its surroundings which lack A Voz Do Morro - Luiz Arruda Paes E Sua Orquestra - Brasil Dia E Noite malar stripe, and in one case have—like other falcons but unlike other true kestrels—large areas of grey in their wings.
This too seems to have evolved in Africa and subsequently spread across the Old World until they reached Australia some time during the Middle Pleistoceneless than one million years ago. This group contains several taxa found on Indian Ocean islands. A group of three predominantly grey species from Africa and Madagascar are usually considered kestrels due to their general shape and habits, but are probably distinct from the true kestrels as outlined above. The American kestrel is the only New World species termed "kestrel".
The molecular data of Groombridge  as well as morphological peculiarities like grey wings in males and a black ear-spot and biogeographystrongly support the view that this species, among the Falco falcons, is not a kestrel at all in the phylogenetic sense but perhaps closer to Volume 1 hobbies.
Other recent DNA analysis takes a similar view that the American kestrel El Rancho Grande - Trio Los Panchos - Trio Los Panchos not a true kestrel, but rather than being linked to the hobbies is more likely genetically more closely related to the larger American falcons such as the aplomado falcon the peregrine falconand prairie falcon.
Common kestrels are ultraviolet sensitive which allows them to visually locate the trails of voles. These small rodents lay scent trails of urine and faeces that reflect ultraviolet light, making them visible to the kestrels, particularly in the spring before the scent marks are covered by vegetation.
