Dickinson's Kestrel

Falco dickinsoni Sclater, PL, 1864

Dickinson's Kestrel (Falco dickinsoni) is a bird of prey of southern and eastern Africa belonging to the falcon family Falconidae. It is named after John Dickinson, an English physician and missionary who collected the type specimen. It is also known as the White-rumped Kestrel. Its closest relatives are the Grey Kestrel and Banded Kestrel and the three are sometimes placed in the subgenus Dissodectes. Source: Wikipedia
