Birds what a falcon is that

Identify and recognize falcons

Here you can learn a lot about the European falcons (Falco). There are many different hawks in the world. On this falcon page you will find a lot about the behavior, the difference between the largest falcon and the smallest falcon that can be seen in Germany. Some falcons can only be seen as winter guests (migrants) here in Germany. On my falcon pages I report on my own observations in nature and in the city and I also take pictures of the falcons in their habitat. Where and when do falcons breed? You will also find pictures of the smallest and the fastest falcon here.

Images of the appearance and identification of falcon species

On my pages you can see many photos of falcon chicks, of the breeding grounds, of the falcon rearing, of the hunting behavior, of the way of life of the falcons, the nesting aids, the courtship, the hunting of the individual falcon species. What does a falcon look like? What do hawks eat? What kind of prey does a falcon strike? Occurrence, hunting behavior and speeds of falcons. Do you want to know the name of the little falcon in the first picture, then take a look at my falcon articles. If you want to determine the bird species falcon, then take a look at the numerous photos.

Do hawks belong to the migratory birds? Hawks are very common around the world. There are over thirty species of falcon. My observations about falcons are limited to our native falcon species and the falcons that you can see as a winter guest here in northern Germany. Hawks have always played a huge role in humans. I just say the Merlin.

What enemies does the falcon have, what do falcons eat and what about illegal persecution. For more on the subject of illegal persecution, see Birds of prey persecution or Birds' enemies. My numerous falcon observations are also accompanied by many pictures. The falcons in Schleswig-Holstein, Hamburg, Bremen and Lower Saxony continue to spread every year.

The various Falken pages are very popular for projects in kindergarten, high school, university and school for lectures in biology, in zoology, in specialist classes, for species profiles, for worksheets and for presentations in biology classes. Here you will find key points, characteristics and special features for your profile template (elementary school, secondary school, high school) about birds. There are extra bird pages for preschool and elementary school, e.g. chick pictures or bird portraits. My page, Falken / Falkenarten is also used to study for the hunter test in Germany.
