Arctic Peregrine Falco

Photo of the Arctic Peregrine Falco, Falco peregrinus callidus. Although peregrine falcons are residents on Greece during winter many individuals from northern countries come along its population. Even some from the subspecies that breeds in the Arctic tundra reach to the Mediterranean to winter. The picture shows a bird found injured in Crete and was taken to MFIK in first aid and care.
