FALCONS

buy falcon online

buy falcon online. Falcons are medium sized birds of prey found all across the world

although falcons tend to prefer the more temperate regions of the Northern Hemisphere.

secondly falcons are best known for their ruthlessness and their incredible flying abilities.

further more falcons have tapered wings that allow the falcon to

change direction extremely quickly especially when compared to other birds.

next falcons have been recorded diving at speeds of up to

200mph, meaning they are the fastest creatures on the planet!

Falcons have adapted in many ways to maximise their chances of survival in the skies. The falcon has tapered wings that allow the falcon to be more agile; incredibly acute eyesight which enables the falcon to spot prey on the ground far below; an aerodynamic body shape means that the falcon glides through the air more easily and a sharp pointed beak helps the falcon to grab and eat it’s prey more effectively.

    PHYSICAL FEATURES:

    The Lanner is a powerful bird of prey, built for speed. The body is a grey-brown or slate colour on the upper parts, with a creamy-white throat and under parts, with some dark patches or stripes. It has a reddish-brown crown. There are dark patches around the eye, extending back down the head, and with a long dark streak down from each eye toward the white cheek.  The wings have dark tips, and the tail has dark barring across it. Females are usually darker in colour, and larger, with more patterns and barring. The juvenile will have more brown colouration, and heavy streaking on the under parts. The skin around the face, and legs, starts as a pale blue colour, but will change to yellow as the bird matures. There are five subspecies of lanner falcon, all with regional colour and size variations.

    Just as all of the falcon family the lanner falcon is built for speed, their sickle shaped wings allow them to stoop, or dive downwards, at high speeds to catch prey, although they prefer to chase prey horizontally, also reaching high speeds.

    The falcon family all have a feature known as the falcons tooth, or tomial tooth. It is a small notch half way up their beak on either side, and on both the upper and lower parts. It is used to allow the bird to easily kill its prey by slotting between, and severing, the vertebrate of the animals

    DIET AND HUNTING BEHAVIOUR:

    The diet of the lanner falcon is mainly small to medium sized birds. They will take birds from the size of a lark, up to the size of a guinea fowl or duck. They have been known to take other falcons, and domestic poultry. It is not unusual for small mammals, mostly rodents and bats, to also be taken, along with insects, reptiles, and occasionally is food is scarce, carrion.

    Hunting usually takes place during the day, with birds gathering where prey is likely to be, such as waterholes, nesting colonies, or grass fires. Large numbers of lanners may gather, numbering up to 20 birds. Unusually the lanner tends to hunt with its mate, hunting cooperatively, with one bird flushing out prey for the other to catch. They will also hunt with young birds, when teaching them. Some birds have been observed to learn to follow human hunters, taking any prey that they flush out. Unlike most birds of prey the lanner does not stoop, or dive, down on its prey, but instead prefers to chase horizontally. They will most often seize flying prey in the air, but will take some on the ground. They have been observed to steal food from other birds of prey.

    BREEDING:

    Little is known about the mating systems of lanner falcons, however both males and females engage in courtship displays, with elaborate flying and loud crying. They are thought to be monogamous, pairing for life.

    Lanner falcons do not build new nests, but instead use old nests from other species, such as storks, corvids, herons, and other raptors. These nest sites are usually in trees, cliff faces, buildings, or on the ground in desert areas.

    Breeding takes place at varying times of the year, depending on the geographical region, and subspecies. The female will lay 3 to 4 eggs, and both the male and female will take it in turn to incubate them for around 32 days. Once hatched, the chicks will take 35 to 47 days to fledge. During this time they will rely on the parents for food, and after 3 months will become independent. The male will do all of the hunting early on, but later in the nesting season and during the fledgling period the female will assist in hunting.

    The lanner falcon is thought to reach sexual maturity at around 2 to 3 years old.

    HUSBANDRY:

    All of our birds of prey are flown daily. This has many benefits to the animal. Firstly it allows the animal to exercise, keeping them fit, and developing flying muscles. It also allows them to perform their natural behaviours, for some of our birds of prey this may include various hunting techniques such as catching prey mid-flight, and chasing down ground prey, or killing a (rubber) snake.

    Each bird has a varied diet, just as it would in the wild, mimicking the varying nutritional properties of each food type and the quantities

    Buy Peale’s falcon

    Description:

    Measurements for male F. p. pealei are as follows: length 16.3 in. (41.4 cm), wingspan 36.2 in. (92.1 cm), wing chord 12.60-13.58 in. (320–345 mm). For females: length 18.7 in. (48 cm), wingspan 43.6 in. (110.8 cm), wing chord 14.29-15.39 in. (363–391 mm)

    Weight range for male F. p. pealei are 28.57-37.32 oz. (810-1,058 g), averaging 33.65 oz. (954 g); females range 43.88-56.33 oz. (1,244-1,597 g), averaging 49.31 oz. (1,398g)

    The adults are generally identified by the presence of heavy horizontal barring across their abdomen, large “tear-drop” shaped markings on their breast (more pronounced in the females) extending up into the auriculars, a white, smokey-white, or grayish background color on the breast (as opposed to the salmon to orangish background color on most other subspecies), very broad malar stripe to a full dark cap, and wider, stronger mandibles than is commonly seen in the species as a whole.

    Immature birds are overall very dark, having little to no buff-colored edging to the feathers of the mantle. Nearly completely dark heads and very heavily streaked ventral markings. Retrices are usually unbarred. Feet and cere color varies from light blue to light yellow.

    Distribution, habitat, and population status:

    he breeding range of F. p. pealei is a rather linear one being entirely coastal in orientation. Starting in the western part of the range, the Commander Islands are generally thought to be the extent to which they exist in Russia. Although they are speculatively referenced as nesting on the Kamchatka Peninsula and possibly the northern Kurile Islands, no evidence has been provided to support these locations. From the Commander Islands eastward they are found throughout the Aleutian Islands to the Sanak Islands, Cherni Island, Deer Island, the Pavlof Islands, and the Shumagin Islands. This area constitutes the western sub-population of F. p. pealei and is an estimated 375-580 breeding pairs strong in Alaskan territory and 20-25 pairs in Russian territory. This group has a very uniformely and densely distributed population, with roughly 5–8 miles of coastline between each eyrie on average. This group also has a tendency to be more uniform in morphology.

    The Alexander Archipelago, Queen Charlotte Islands, portions of the British Columbia coast, the outer coast of Vancouver Island, and the Olympic Peninsula make up the eastern sub-population of F. p. pealei. The highest density of peregrines anywhere in the world was recorded on Langara Island in the mid 1950s. Ten nests being occupied in a single small bay of only 7.5 mi (12 km) of coastline, and a total of 21 nests on the whole island. Unfortunately this astounding concentration of peregrine falcons was intimately linked to the very robust local seabird population that has declined since the 1950s due to unknown factors. Possible culprits for the decline include introduced non-native predators of seabirds such as rats and raccoons, coupled with possible changes brought on by human activities in the oceanic food chain on which the seabird colonies depend. The peregrine population of Langara Island is now believed to be about 25% of what it once was.The current population of the eastern sub-group of F. p. pealei is about 20 breeding pairs in Washington, about 100 pairs in British Columbia, and about another 100 pairs in the Alexander Archipelago.

    Hunting and food habits:

    The Peale’s falcon is known to concentrate its hunting efforts on Alcids. In fact the subspecies is well known to nest very near seabird colonies for the convenience of close hunting grounds. However this is not necessary for a successful eyrie. In a study on Amchitka Island from 1968-1973, it was found that an average of 18.6 eyries on the island (over the course of the study) were in no close proximity to seabird colonies as no sizable colonies existed on the island. Instead, these large, robust birds fly out to sea to hunt up to 50 miles from land, rather than inland toward the interior. Which is quite an impressive physical feat as they must either eat their prey while flying or carry the prey back to land to perch and then consume it, as peregrines are not known to be able to rest and stay afloat on water as seabirds do. Preferred species on Amchitka consisted of: Crested auklet (Aethia cristatella), 26.48% of the diet’s biomass; Ancient murrelet (Synthliboramphus antiquus), 17.18% of the biomass; and alcids as a group provided 65.52% of the biomass

    The saker falcon is a large hierofalcon, larger than the lanner falcon and almost as large as gyrfalcon at 45–57 cm (18–22 in) length with a wingspan of 97–126 cm (38–50 in). Males weigh between 730–990 g (26–35 oz) and females 970–1,300 g (34–46 oz). It resembles a larger but browner gyrfalcon. It is larger and more heavily built than the related lanner falcon.

    Saker falcons tend to have variable plumage. Males and females are similar, except in size, as are young birds, although these tend to be darker and more heavily streaked. The call is a sharp kiy-ee or a repeated kyak-kyak-kyak.
