Birds at the AALBG

Nankeen (Australian) Kestrel (Falco cenchroides)

This small falcon preys on lizards, large insects and mouse-sized animals. It either 'still-hunts' from a perch (tree or man-made structure) or by hovering, then dropping onto its victim. The male has a grey head and tail and fewer spots.
