African pygmy falcons, unlike many species of raptors, have different markings to distinguish males and females – females have a brown patch between their wings, while males have a solid grey back. This tiny species of falcon is the smallest raptor in Africa – adults are less than 8 inches long. Although small, they are predators, and hunt large insects, small reptiles, and even small mammals. In the wild, African pygmy falcons often utilize the empty nests of weaver birds as nesting sites. They will also use tree cavities. They typically lay 3-4 eggs per clutch and their incubation is 28-30 days. Both parents help rear the chicks.
