Saker Falcons in Hungary 2015

The Saker is a very large falcon that lives in open habitat like steppes or in open areas in mountains - in some countries also in agricultural areas (for example in Austria and Hungary). Enough prey in form of medium-sized mammals (like susliks) or birds is important. Distribution is from eastern Europe (eastern Austria, Czeck Republic, Hungary, Turkey, etc.) eastwards over the Asian steppes to Mongolia and China. The largest European population lives in Hungary with 241 known nests in 2012.
During an attempt to photograph the Eastern Imperial Eagle in Hungary we were lucky to find a pair of Sakers visiting the carcass outside our hide several times every day.
