Click on the links below to learn about Blandford's resident hawks and falcons!

Hawks and falcons are birds of prey that hunt during the daytime.  They both have excellent eyesight and sharp talons allowing them to efficiently spot and capture their prey.  Hawks and falcons differ in their wing shape, with falcons having much more pointed wings than the broad wings of a hawk.
