"Kite" should be accepted as a type of falcon, too. http://www.thefreedictionary.com/Kite+falcon

I'm somewhat of a bird enthusiast, and I'm going to have to disagree with that. Other than that strange definition, nowhere is there anything called a Kite Falcon. The genus Avicida/Aviceda it refers to in the definition are called Cuckoo-hawks, and - along with any bird called a kite - belong to the Accipitridae family, distinct from Falcons.

I would second that. If it said "type of bird of prey" then kite would be fine. It's not a falcon, though.

Agreed - kites are not falcons. Kestrels are falcons (family Falconidae).

Buzzards, kites and hawks are separate subgroups all in the same family (family Accipitridae).

Can we not get credit for the falcon like bird being a KITE ??

That's what I originally typed in.

Thanks for checking to see if a Kite could be accepted ...

And if not, then I agree that a Kookaburra and a Kite should/could both be added into this mix.

Kite is not a falcon. There are two main orders of birds of prey, Falconiformes - falcons, and Accipitriformes - hawks and eagles. Kite belongs to the second one.

Admittedly, this isn't meant to be a definitive list of k creatures, but I was a little surprised to find that baby animals and mythical beasts had been included at the expense of things such as the kookaburra, kingfisher, kittiwake, kite, knot and kagu. (Hmm, what a lot of bird names beginning with a k.)

Proud as non native speaker of english I got kestrel :) no idea where I picked that up.. maybe when earlier this year I was trying to find out what predatory bird had landed in my garden. (Not a rural area, rows of attached houses with a garden of 4x6m got loads of birds though cause nearly the only one with trees in it (and other green patches, like a miniature forest, loads of bugs and even hedgehogs. Most other gardens in the street are completely paved, a lot of times the 2,5x1,5m front garden aswell! So ugly.. we dont have any green in the area, just streets and sidewalks, why pave that too!)

Maybe update the clue for Kestrel and add that it's the smallest falcon. Would've helped me a lot.
