Unusual foraging behaviour of Amur Falcons

  • AM Archer

Abstract

Amur Falcons Falco amurensis are non-breeding Palaearctic migrants (Nov-May) to the eastern parts of Southern Africa. This species forage mainly by perch-hunting as well as hover-hunting over open grass- and croplands. On non-breeding grounds, it consumes almost exclusively arthropods (locusts and grasshoppers, termite alates, beetles, bees); they may occasionally capture birds.
