Raptors | Brown Falcon > captured moments | preening

In the following images, we were thrilled to photograph different Brown Falcons (Falco berigora) in their private moments. The following series of Brown Falcon (Falco berigora) photographs were taken at the Alice Springs Sewage Ponds in Central Australia.

In the following series of photos, the Brown Falcon had caught something in a clump of red clay, most likely an insect or spider.
