American Kestrel aka Sparrow Hawk

I came across this bird on one of my walks this weekend.  I thought it was a sparrow hawk.  When I looked it up it identified it as an American Kestrel.  Upon further reading, I found out they’re one and the same.  It’s a fairly small bird – not much bigger than a scrub jay. I’m hoping one of my readers can confirm what bird this is.
