SPECIES INFO

The Brown Falcon, Falco berigora, is a member of the falcon genus found in the drier regions of Australia. Its specific name berigora is derived from an aboriginal name for the bird.

It differs from other falcons in that it has broader wings and longer legs. Even though it is as large as the largest falcon, it usually hunts smaller prey. The Brown Falcon usually nests in old nests abandoned by other birds. This species occupies a large area of inland Australia. The Brown Falcon is about 45 cm in length.
