Red-footed Falcons in the Po Valley

Red-footed Falcons colonized recently N Italy and now they are breeding in the Po Valley, from the surroundings of Parma to the Po Delta, where their presence favoured also the recent breeding record of Lesser Kestrel too. The Falcons breed on trees, using nest abandoned by Magpies or Crows; the photo shows 2 young birds in a nest on an electric pylon (courtesy of Michele Mendi from Parma).
