Faucon de Dickinson

Falco dickinsoni

Petit faucon d'une envergure de 60 à 65 cm que l'on en Afrique australe souvent dans les alentours des palmiers et des baobabs.
Connu pour se trouver dans les alentours des feux de brousses pour trouver plus facilement ses proies qui tentent de s'échapper, il mange la même chose que la plupart des faucons c'est-à-dire de gros insectes, petits batraciens, serpents et mulots.

Dickinson kestrel also known as White-rumped kestrel
 Small kestrel with a 60 to 65 cm wingspan found in Southern Africa, often around palm trees and baobabs.
Known to be attracted to bush fires where it is easy to find its prey; it  eats the same thing as most hawks such as large insects, small amphibians, snakes and field mice.

  3. Superb photographs, Noushka, of this really beautiful little raptor! I like how the orange marking under his eyes make the eyes look larger.

    Thank you so much for sharing more of your adventures!
