Brown Falcon: Making it Look Easy

Brown Falcon, Falco berigora

+==============+

Spent nearly half an hour with this bird, it kept going back to one spot, then flying off and hunting in the general area, then returning to sit for 5 -6 minutes.

Such a classic Brown hunt, I should have twigged its intentions.

Then it left the perch, swooped up to a tall tree, and sat.

I've a theory that Browns map everything. It took it all in, worked out its attack point, its exit point, and no doubt a plan B

Then it dropped. No wingflap. Dropped.

 

And in the next frame it turned with the snake well controllled.

 

Gotta Love Browns
