Red-necked Falcon

Falco chicquera

This spectacular, long-tailed falcon  is a fairly common resident in arid savanna and woodland.

We first recorded it in May 2013 while visiting the Kgalagadi Transfrontier Park for the first time. It was one of our target birds for the trip and we were not to be dissapointed. With the help of close friends; Jimmy and Kate, we were able to locate a breeding pair at the Union End picnic site and get some super photographs.
