Red footed Falcons, Hotorbagy National Park, Part 1

I have previously seen breeding Red Footed Falcons in colonies within Kazakhstan but that was many years ago and pre DSLR days so this was a welcome opportunity to get up close and personal to this cracking migratory falcon. 

I was quite surprised how aggressive this species can be to the Common Kestrels that were also nesting within this colony and how vocal they are especially during courtship and copulation. 

Having spent a great many hours within this colony I still came to the same conclusion that I have always had that I believe females are just as good, if not better than males for their aesthetic values.
