RED -FOOTED FALCON

USUALLY I DO NOT POST BIRDS ON WIRE, BUT THIS ONE IS A VERY RARE BIRD IN MY COUNTRY, PROTECTED BY LAW AND SO I MAKE AN EXCEPTION.

The Red-footed Falcon (Falco vespertinus), formerly Western Red-footed Falcon, is a bird of prey. It belongs to the family Falconidae, the falcons. This bird is found in eastern Europe and Asia although its numbers are dwindling rapidly due to habitat loss and hunting. It is migratory, wintering in Africa.

It is a medium-small, long-winged species. The adult male is all blue-grey, except for his red undertail and legs; its underwings are uniformly grey. The female has a grey back and wings, orange head and underparts, and a white face with black eye stripe and moustaches.

This is a diurnal bird of open country with some trees, often near water. Its distinctive method of hunting is shared by the Common Kestrel. It regularly hovers, searching the ground below, then makes a short steep dive towards the target. The Red-footed Falcon's main prey is large insects, but it will also take small mammals and birds.

Good capture of a Falcon on electric cable, Marius.
The pose of the bird facilitates a clear view of its falcon eye.
The greyish sky also provides a suitable background.
Thanks.

Hi Marius.
Nice meeting and excellent picture of the charming bird. It is funny that most of my birdshot is birds on a wire. Colours of the bird, details are great. TFS and warm regards.
Alexei.
