Grey Falcon

Falco hypoleucos Gould, 1841

The Grey Falcon (Falco hypoleucos) is a rare medium-sized falcon, one of the enigmatic ‘mystery’ birds of Australia, neither easily nor predictably seen. Recent studies however have contributed to the gathering of further information on this elusive bird of prey. One of the reasons behind this lack of information could be the difficulty in identifying a Grey Falcon while in the field. Schoenjahn (2010) has identified other species of birds which are often mistaken for a Grey Falcon such as the; Brown Falcon (Falco berigora), Grey Goshawk (Accipiter novaehollandiae), adult Collared Sparrowhawk (Accipiter cirrhocephalus), Brown Goshawks (Accipiter fasciatus) and the Black-shouldered Kite (Elanus axillaris).
