Falco – Falcons

The pure falcons in the actual sense

This term refers to any of the almost 60 species of hawks in the Falconiformes order, which are diurnal birds of prey with long, pointed wings and strong flyers.
The term is given to the genus Falco, which has 39 species, in a limited sense, as real falcons. Falcons may be found almost anywhere on the planet.

In real falcons, the female is the bigger and more aggressive of the two sexes, and she is chosen for falconry. Falcons have “flags” on their legs and a well-developed notch in the beak that forms a “tooth” in the Falco species. Falcons usually build their nests in tree holes or on natural ledges on cliffs.
