Prairie Flacon

North American Wildlife

Prairie Falcon (Falco mexicanus)
The prairie falcon's range consists of the arid and semi-arid plains of western North America, Baja and northern Mexico.  It is sandy brown in color, with a light streaked underside and averages between 17 and 20 inches in length.  Although it feeds on a variety of prey, including insects, small reptiles, squirrels and prairie dogs, it prefers to dine on other birds; especially those found on or near the ground.
