Barbary Falcon (Falco pelegrinoides), "El Rubicón" plains, Lanzarote

The Barbary Falcon (Falco pelegrinoides) is a resident breeder of the Canary islands and North African coasts. In good light conditions, it is easily distinguished from the slightly larger Peregrine by the rufous-coloured nape.

 

On Lanzarote, its population is estimated at ca. 20 breeding pairs. Population size is considered stable or even slightly increasing.
