Prairie Falcon

A falcon of open habittats and canyon lands, Prairie Falcons hunt rodents and birds by shallow-angled swoops from low to the ground, rather than by the high-altitude stoops of Peregrine Falcon. Young Peregrines can look very similar to Prairie Falcon but have longer, darker tails and never show Prairie’s underwing pattern. Prairie Falcon is almost unknown wast of the Mississippi River and appears to be declining in many areas of the West

VOICE Similar to the Peregrine but a bit highter
