It's not a Kestrel. I am positive of that. Can you give some info as to location and approx size? It doesn't really have the beak of a raptor.

Wish I could help, but I am pretty much limited to the birds in the northwest. Hopefully some of our tropical friends can help. Good luck and I wish I were there soaking up the sun too. :G
