All about the prairie falcon.

Often, it is the charismatic and spectacular that draws people to nature. When wildlife is depicted onscreen for example, we’ll usually see images of large mammals and skillful predators; bears, wolves, lions, bison, elk, all doing their thing amidst some gorgeous and wild landscape. Birding is no different, with raptors garnering much of the public’s awe and attention. This shouldn’t be surprising: hawks, owls, and eagles are majestic predators that have been honored by human cultures for millennia, appearing in art, literature, and oral histories. For many birders though, it is the falcons that hold a special place among birds of prey.
