I really want to have a closer look at these Birds of Prey but they are always perching on bare tree branches which are so high and may be difficult to reach even with a telephoto lens. The only way to get it right is find them again in a lower perch and then take the best photographs and that can wait for another opportunities. Seeing this bird for the first time was quite unbelievable to me that a raptor can be this small. Well, the name says so, Falconet!

I have seen them in some other places and yet they are still small as they are. I am very interested about this bird, we have seen them snatch small and big insects, i have not seen them feed on rodents or smaller birds, but they Birds of Prey so they will feed when they are hungry.
