The Aplomado Falcon (Falco femoralis) is mostly found in South America
Its upperparts are dark blue-grey, with the usual falcon “moustache” contrasting sharply with the white throat and eyestripe. The tail is black with narrow white or grey bars and a white tip. Females are bigger than males.
The Aplomado Falcon feeds on large invertebrates and small vertebrates, with small birds making up the overwhelming bulk of its prey.
