About the Aplomado Falcon
Also known as: Orange-chested Hobby, Arizona Hawk, Femoral Falcon

The Aplomado Falcon, a medium-sized and agile bird of prey, is found across a broad range of territories, including Mexico, parts of Central and South America, and the southwestern United States. This falcon is known for its impressive hunting skills and striking appearance.

Sporting a sleek, streamlined body, the Aplomado Falcon is adept at maneuvering through the air with remarkable speed and precision. Its plumage is a mix of slate gray on the upper parts and a lighter, barred underside, which provides excellent camouflage in its natural habitat.

These falcons are active hunters, often seen in pursuit of prey during the early morning hours. Their diet is diverse, consisting of smaller birds, rodents, lizards, and large insects, which they capture with their sharp talons after swift aerial chases. This varied diet reflects their adaptability and skill as predators.

The Aplomado Falcon's presence in various regions highlights its adaptability to different environments. While their numbers have been stable in much of their range, in some areas, notably the southwestern United States, they have faced challenges due to habitat loss and changes in land use. Conservation efforts in these regions are vital to ensure the continued survival and prosperity of this remarkable falcon species.
