very interesting moment! sir could you please give a brief description of the ritual? is the male feeding the female simultaneously?

i feel its a shikra. all falcons including kestrels have relatively larger heads. also note lack of moustachial stripe which is quite prominent in juvenile and female common kestrels. the characteristic 'diamond' pattern kestrels is also lacking on the back.

this one again is a juvenile and not an adult..brownish upperwing and scapulars with white tips, and yellowish eyes (not red as in adult))

would like to point out that this bird is a juvenile and not an adult- note the yellow eyes and brownish upperwing coverts and scapulars with white tips

indeed a very significant record, sir! ideally the plover should be thinking of returning home with the advent of summer here...it would be great if we could track, follow and study this pair.
