February was windy this year. Still, the dogs expected the morning walk so off we trudged, staggering against the gusts.  Ahead, the Kestrel clung to a steel fence post.  We paused as he saw us, let go, and was instantly swept eastward out over the corn field.  He made a vigorous attempt to head back into the wind but finally abandoned flight and grabbed hold on his lowly perch. “Windswept”
