| Falco koehni|
Falco kohenii (lapsus)
Lesser Fox Kestrel. Said to somewhat resemble a fox kestrel.
The female is unique because they have grey face, unlike that of the common kestrel. She also has more barring on the breast, back, tail and scapulars.
The Eurasian Hobby has a black face instead of a bluish-grey head. American Kestrel is more brightly coloured. Other falcons (more than) likely lack the bluish-grey face.
It is able to see urine trails of various small mammals such as rodents .
Feeds on rodents, frogs, earthworms, small birds, bats, dragonflies, lizards, etc.
Klee-klee-klee, like that of an American kestrel .
This species is usually monogamous unless their mate dies or cannot breed properly may split .
Nest is in a tree cavity, a natural ledge or an old nest of another bird .
Incubation lasts about thirty days and young fledge in four months.
It is native to southern Europa. Does not migrate.
