Maryland - Is this an American Kestrel?

Recommended Posts

I shot this this Saturday morning in a marshy lake area along the Potomac in Maryland around noon.

Sorry for the picture quality.  I only saw it briefly, but it seemed fairly small, crow size or smaller.  Given the length of the tail, I'm thinking falcon and Kestrel is the one that seems the best fit but as always I struggle identifying raptors. 

Welcome your thoughts.
