Charles River Peninsula Kestrel

What's that in the shag-bark hickory tree at the Charles River Peninsula?
Could it be?
Yes it is. An American Kestrel. A male.
See the blue?

I usually see kestrels in April at the CRP, just passing through. This one left not long after I arrived. BUT on my wait out I noticed it had returned to the shag-bark hickory. So who knows. Maybe this is the year the kestrels stay....
[UPDATE: Friday April 6--still there. Even heard a little vocalization (aimed at red-tailed hawk)]
