Falcons of the World: Bat Falcon & Orange-Breasted Falcon

Falco rufigularis & Falco deiroleucus. 

These two similar birds are found in forested areas and near rocky outcroppings across regions of Mexico and south throughout Central America and across much of South America. Both birds feed primarily on birds, insects, and reptiles. The primary diet of the Bat Falcon shouldn’t come as a surprise. 

Populations of both of these wonderful species have declined dramatically due to habitat loss. 

Thank you so much for looking at birds with me.
