Lanner Falcon

Falco biarmicus

Found right across Africa, this medium sized falcon can often be seen chasing small birds, small reptiles and even bats. This falcon will often co-operate in a pair to do this and centre its focus on a gathering point for colonial birds – where it can confuse and panic its prey. This method of hunting saves time climbing to a height in order to stoop.

The Lanner falcon has a dark malar stripe under each eye. This dark feathering is thought to help to prevent glare for the falcon when hunting.

Watch an owl swoop through its natural, woodland habitat, stroll in open countryside accompanied by a hawk and witness an eagle or vulture soar before diving back down to earth and onto the gloved arm.
