this was taken in Israel.
yeah i know the quality isn't the best because its 100% crop(i only have 135mm maximum focal length for now).
this was my first time trying to shoot birds and I dont know much about them so I can't tell what species im photographing:cool:

I think I can be sure its not a Honey Buzzard, the wings aren't broad enough and the tips are too pointed, the Honey Buzzard house more rounded wing tips with the primaries being more spread leaving finger gaps between the ends.....

First picture in second set definitly nails it as a Common Kestrel for me. Lots local to me to compare to.
