When you think red, white, and blue
Does a bird thought come to you?
If it didn’t, I won’t tell.
Since, it flustered me as well.
That’s the colors on this bird.
So, let me pass the word
That it’s about a Kestrel.
Not an Eagle or an Owl,
It is not a water fowl,
As this Raptor’s pretty face
Has some patriotic grace.
It’s a little bird of prey
That helps keep the mice away.
With those colors in its wings,
As I think about these things,
We should find a good minstrel.
Make a song about Kestrel
At games, everybody sings.
The American Kestrel is a pretty, tiny raptor that has very patriotic colors
