I could use some help identifying this bird I found dead on my property. Any guesses?

I agree on the Kestrel but my iBird app shows it as the American Kestrel.
I did a search on "Common Kestrel" and it comes back empty...I know the bird experts change bird names because they have done so over the years with some of my favorites!
At any rate, a pretty and interesting little falcon!
Too bad she met her demise!

Red face Falco sparverius...

Correction:

Wikipedia, on the Sparrow Hawk, American Kestrel:

The American kestrel (Falco sparverius) is...the smallest raptor in America.[5]
