Saker Falcon~

Lovely pictures of Saker Falcons by Cindy.

Saker Falcons live in Austria, Eastern Europe and Asia, including Russia.

They are considered an endangered bird due to rapid population declines in their Asian breeding grounds.

They are a large falcon species,
that prey mostly on rodents and other birds.

Sakers often hunt horizontally like Kestrels, not vertically like Peregrines.
I watched a Saker swoop down on an unsuspecting pigeon, but my presence, in response to the pigeon cries, called off the hunt!
Cheers to you from the remarkable and endangered Saker Falcons~

  1. You’re more than welcome, Cindy. I’m so glad to help I hope these beautiful creatures and other wildlife make a comeback. It would be a great loss for all of us if they didn’t. Thank you for your kind comment. 🙂 — Suzanne
