Polihierax – Pygmy falcon

Members of this group live unitedly and stand their ground no matter where they are

Members of this genus are primarily native to Northeastern Africa and Southwestern Africa, where the members of this genus stay indefinitely, as they do not migrate in any seasons.

This genus’ members are sociable, dependent on one or more partners to procreate and raise their young. They prefer regions with little vegetation and a few trees for perching. For hunting, open spaces are preferable. They are sedentary creatures that will spend most of their life in one location. These falcons prefer to hunt in the mornings and evenings to avoid the daytime heat when the weather is cooler. They occasionally attack smaller birds in flight but prefer to hunt tiny terrestrial creatures.
