Brighten the images if you're not sure... ; )

It is not an American Kestrel because:

  1. It has a solid gray back
  2. It has thick brown streaking on its belly/flanks
  3. It doesn't have an obvious black auricular patch or white cheek
  4. It has a darker face overall which contrasts with the light orbital ring

Thank you. That helps a lot.
