Medium-sized gray kestrel. Note the pale head, rump, and underwing, which are conspicuous in flight. Bright yellow eye ring and base of bill. Found in open savanna, preferring areas with baobabs and/or palms. Call is a repeated, vibrating “krrrr.” Similar to Gray Kestrel, but easily distinguished by paler head and underparts. Other small falcons do not have gray underparts.
