Lovely pictures of Saker Falcons by Cindy.
They are considered an endangered bird due to rapid population declines in their Asian breeding grounds.
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~
