Habitat & Description
The Prairie Falcon is a large bird of prey that has a pale brown back and whitish chest. This raptor primarily resides in western United States and is

Red-Tailed Hawks and even Common Ravens! These cliff nests they commonly dwell in basically are just dug out holes to hold their eggs. Sometimes you will
