These raptors are extraordinary hunters, capable of snatching their preferred prey of smaller birds right out of the air. Larks, swallows and even doves can fall victim to the fast-moving, ferocious falcon.
One of these little birds became this particular falcon’s breakfast recently. I missed the actual kill but was able to capture some images of it as it quickly devoured its victim. Pretty fun stuff and a good example of predator and prey in nature.
