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.
