A large kestrel with long pointed wings and tail. The base color is a rich rufous with fine black streaking. In flight, the wings are rufous and black above and pale below. Found around cliffs and other rocky areas within dry savanna, usually in pairs. Similar to Greater Kestrel, but slimmer and more rufous, with rusty rather than gray barring in the tail. The calls are agitated “kree” notes.
