Brown Falcon (Falco berigora)


Adults are usually 40 cm to 50 cm long. They are found in light and dark forms and a variety of intermediates. Animals typically have red-brown heads with narrow black streaks with a light crown and off white chin. Wings are a spotted red-brown with dark brown quills. Beaks are light blue/grey, eyes are brown. The falcons make a loud cackle call uttered frequently.


The brown falcon eats small mammals, including house mice and young rabbits. It also eats small birds, lizards, snakes and a variety of invertebrates particularly caterpillars, grasshoppers, crickets and beetles. Insects form the bulk of the animals diet during winter and the falcons often chase the insects on the ground.

    I work in the middle of Glenorchy and perched on top of the mobile towers are two brown falcons! Both making screeching noises and circling around the tower. Amazing birds!

    I think that what you posted made a ton of sense.
    However, think on this, what if you wrote a catchier
    post title? I am not suggesting your content isn’t
    solid., however suppose you added something that grabbed a
    person’s attention? I mean Brown Falcon | Raptor
    Refuge Inc. is a little plain. You might peek at Yahoo’s home page and see how they write article headlines
    to grab people interested. You might add a related video
    or a pic or two to get people interested about everything’ve got to say.

    In my opinion, it might bring your website a little bit more interesting.
