GreyKestrel

November 15, 2017 – Grey Kestrel (Falco ardosiaceus)

These kestrels are found across parts of sub-Saharan Africa. Hunting from high perches, they eat a variety of vertebrate and invertebrate prey, including insects, reptiles, rodents, birds, bats, and earthworms. They are one of the few species of raptors that may also eat oil palm fruits. Pairs often take over the nests of Hamerkops, sometimes stealing them from the birds, or nest in tree cavities or old stick nests.
