Collared Falconet

The Collared Falconet is one of the smallest birds of prey, a pocket-sized falcon!

In the wild it has a very large distribution across Bhutan, Cambodia, China, India, Laos, Myanmar, Nepal and Thailand.

It feeds on many kinds of insects including cicadas, dragonflies, bees and butterflies, and will also catch and eat small birds. Holes in tree trunks created by woodpeckers or barbets are used to nest in.

This group is here because an attempt was made to bring them into Europe illegally. They were seized by the authorities but sadly couldn’t be returned to the wild and we have given them a home.

Please note: They are out on good weather days.
