Adoption Form
Saker Falcon 
(Falco cherrug) Hierofalcon - 'Hyde'

"Hyde" was hatched in 2012. This species breeds from eastern Europe eastwards across Asia to Manchuria. It is mainly migratory except in the southernmost parts of its range, wintering in Ethiopia, the Arabian peninsula, northern Pakistan and western China.

 

As the breeding season commences in spring, males begin to perform spectacular aerial displays as a form of a courtship ritual to attract females, calling loudly as they soar over their territories. 

 

Saker Falcons are part of a group of falcons called Hierofalcons. This is a group of four different falcons that are closely related (Lugger, Gyr & Lanner Falcons also join this subgenus.)

Around 130,000 - 115,000 years ago in the late Piacenzian era there was a global radiation & climate change, which led to the hybridisation of these falcons. The Saker Falcon represents a lineage that expanded out of northeastern Africa into the interior of southeastern Europe & Asia, by way of the eastern Mediterranean region.
