Collared Falconet

Huay Kha Kaeng Wildlife Sanctuary, Utai Thani

This is a real cute little guy. One of the smallest birds of prey in the world at only 15.5-18cm.
They use exposed perches from where they feed. Never hover or soar but use a direct flight from tree to tree. They almost look like compact swallows in the air.

Canon EOS 350D
1/200s f/7.1 at 400.0mm iso200 full exif

other sizes: small medium original auto

That's a great picture! Never saw one of those but would love to! Your website is great in general, I ve been using it a lot during our holiday in Thailand to identify birds!! Always succesfully as well :)
