This species belongs to the Order Falconiformes and the Family Falconidae, and has the scientific name Falco naumanni. It is a small falcon (length 27-33 cm, wingspan 63-72 cm), is mainly insectivorous, and is closely linked during the breeding season to urban areas or other human settlements. It is a diurnal migratory raptor – although in some parts of southern Spain, Italy and north-west Africa is present throughout the year – that occupies areas with hot climates with the presence of more or less natural steppe and cultivated areas.
