Taita Falcon

Taita Falcon

Taita Falcon; inhabits and nests in the rocky gorges although it can no longer be found readily in its best known habitat (Batoka gorge), possibly as a result of tourist disturbance with the over flights. However, the species is a very weak competitor which is easily by larger falcons occurring in the same habitat.
