The Nankeen Kestrel (Falco cenchroides) is the smallest falcon in Australia and one of the most commonly seen. They prefer open country such as grasslands and avoid dense forests. Small prey items such as lizards and insects may be eaten while flying but larger kills like rodents are taken back to a perch to consume.
