Prairie Falcon takes the Leap Day leap

This little raptor has been a continuous source of entertainment for me during the winter. It can be a bit hit or miss as to whether or not it will allow its picture taken but when it does, it performs beautifully.

On this particular day a few weeks ago, the falcon gave me some nice poses before following up with a leap and a flight. It’s jump into the air seems like a fitting image for Leap Day today.

Prairie Falcons are found across much of the western United States and Mexico. They prefer to dine on smaller birds, oftentimes diving right into flocks and snatching their prey.

You can check out more pics I have taken of these cool raptors here.
