The Pigmy Falcon


Polihierax semitorquatus
Piccolo,meno di 20 centimetri,
ma guardate i suoi occhi rossi:
inconfondibilmente un falco!
Solitamente in coppia,in zone aride,
in stretta associazione con i Tessitori
(Sociable weavers or Redbilled buffalo
weavers).
---Very small,less than 20 cm,
but watch its red eyes:a Falcon,
without any doubt.
You can see them very often in arid
zones in close association with
Sociable weavers or Redbilled buffalo
weavers.

I love these little flacons but they are difficult to get pictures of. Well done!!
