Introducing different types of falcon

We will introduce the falcons. Falcons are the head of a group of wild birds. One of the differences between falcons and owls is that these birds are diurnal.

In contrast, falcons have evolved into falcons. Of course, these two orders of birds have genetic file differences.

Falcons are powerful hunters. One of the reasons they are unrivaled is the very strong sight of this order of birds. Falcons are small or medium in size, but their long, pointed wings make them fast predators.
