These stunning adult brown falcons were captured in the midst of a territorial conflict, truly embodying the nature of raptors - a word that originates from the Latin term 'raptare', meaning 'to seize and carry off'. Throughout the breeding season, these falcons are fiercely territorial and will aggressively chase off any intruders that enter their domain.
