We're delighted to have a strong population of strange-tailed tyrants at the reserve. So much so that we've adopted these beautiful and endangered birds as the symbol of the Trust
This stunning little falcon measures only 25cm in length. The male has the typical moustache associated with the Falco genus and is brightly coloured with blue/grey head and primaries, white throat and white speckled grey breast. The back is pinkish with a spotting affect from black & white tipped feathers, and the tail and rump are red.
Sexual dimorphism is apparant in this species with the female slightly larger and less brightly coloured.
