Falcons – models compared
The Brown Falcon Falco berigora – common and lumbering compared to its close relative F.subniger, but a handsome raptor nonetheless.
The Black Falcon Falco subniger – this swift and powerful predator of birds is nowhere common, so always a sight to behold.

Note the prominent barring, especially on the primary wing feathers.
