All of Northern Africa, the Middle East and Southern Europe
Sager Falcons are majestic and powerful birds of prey that have a wide range throughout much of Southern Europe, the Middle East and parts of Africa. Their plumage ranges from chocolate brown in colour to a pale sandy with brown bars or streaks and can be snow white and off-white.
The Saker Falcon has a large range from #Europe, to the #MiddleEast and #Africa, however they are endangered on @IUCNredlist from human-made threats including #deforestation. Join the #Boycott4Wildlife and help save themTweet
This species has been uplisted to Endangered because a revised population trend analysis indicates that they may be undergoing a very rapid decline. This negative trend is a result of a range of anthropogenic factors including electrocution on power lines, unsustainable capture for the falconry trade, as well as habitat degradation throughout all three continents but especially in Africa.
