Falcons

 
 
Here are some of the falcons I carved.

Falcons are found all over the world and range in size from five inches long to 24 inches long.

The American Kestral, about 10 inches long, is the smallest falcon in North America. The male of the species is known for his exceptional display vibrant of colors.

Hunting techniques vary with different species, but falcons are generally known for their stooping (high dive) speed with wings tightly tucked to their bodies and the startling and final surprise for their prey.

Falcons are selective by species, but their prey consists of many things from insects to small birds.

Wings of falcons are long relative to their width and appear pointed making them easy to identify in the sky.

They are beautiful birds and differ in both appearance and habits from hawks and other birds of prey.
