A blue jay objected to the presence of the kestrel and buzzed it several times. The size comparison here demonstrates just how small this little raptor is. The kestrel finally gave up and flew away.

Hiding In The Berries
I followed the kestrel to a tree covered in berries. He looked so handsome there, his rusty breast colors blended in with the berries.

@sambiology do you recognize what tree this is by the berries? Is it chinaberry? I'll make an observation for it if you know.

About To Take Off
He posed for a split second before he exploded off the branch and dropped like a rock to the ground behind the tree where I could not see him. Too fast for me to catch him in flight but I did get this pose. He was absolutely breathtaking.

Smart Predator Perch
I found the male kestrel on the other side of the road from where the female was perched on a wire. The male was way down a hill high up in a tree covered with berries. Smart because these berries attract lots of little birds that eat both berries and insects in the berries. No prey taken while I was there.

adult female Red-shouldered Hawk at nest.
Castolon, Big Bend National Park,
Brewster Co., Texas
3 May 1989
very rare species in this part of Texas.
This image scanned from 35mm slide.
Image 1 full view, image 2 cropped from image 1

This iNat record only pertains to this Red-shouldered Hawk at a nest, but since this was a historically significant nesting of a mixed pair of species, I am adding the other info here in the event folks are interested.

This nest site was discovered in late April 1989 and was being tended by a Red-shouldered Hawk and a Gray Hawk. I took this (and other) images on 3 May 1989. We saw the adult Gray Hawk near this Red-shouldered, but I believe the only slides of the two species together are in the Texas Photo Record File at Texas A&M University taken by others. In any event, I don't have any shots of the Gray Hawk. I will quote from American Birds, Texas Region, spring season 1989 by Greg Lasley and Chuck Sexton (@gcwarbler). This account is also published in "A Field Guide to Birds of the Big Bend", 2nd edition, 1996, by Roland Wauer, pp. 40-41.

"Undoubtedly the event of the season was the nesting of a Gray Hawk with a Red-shouldered Hawk near Castolon in Big Bend. Various observers watched either a Gray Hawk or a Red-shouldered Hawk (which was often misidentified as an imm. Gray) at a nest there through April and there was a good deal of lively discussion and confusion among birders about which species was nesting where. Finally in early May, speculation of a mixed pair began to be discussed as various obs. saw the Red-shouldered incubating and the Gray flying overhead calling on various occasions (JA, GL, ph.,LA, PG). Finally, suspicions of a mixed pair were confirmed May 18 when Purrington and Muth observed the Gray Hawk deliver a lizard to the nest where it was accepted by the Red-shouldered. One downy chick was clearly visible peeking over the edge of the nest. On May 22 & 24 Gee watched this odd couple standing shoulder to shoulder at the edge of the nest in what he felt was an attempt to shade the eggs or young from the intense sun. By the last few days of May it was apparent that the pair had deserted the nest (fide BBo) and that the young bird(s) had not survived. This hybridization is almost certainly unprecedented."
