Brown Falcon: Hard Working Dad

Brown Falcon, Falco berigora,


This is Cassia, of Cinnamon's mate.

Unlike her, he is quite light. Bordering on white.

Not unusal, but his cere and eye ring are Yellow. I'm told that might be a sign of age.

He hunts away on the grasslands quite far from the nest area. So we don't get to see him other than occasional visits when he returns with a meal.

And because of that we don't have much connection with him. And he has never shown much tolerance. Mostly disdain.

None the less a most handsome bird.
