Add to Cart Add to Lightbox Download
Sioux County, Nebraska. Tucked among the rugged Niobrara River breaks in Nebraska's high plains, a female prairie falcon perches on a wildflower and lichen strewn rocktop not far from her cliff-side aerie. As their name implies, prairie falcons are birds of the open grasslands, and one of the iconic raptor species in the Great Plains. They live and nest among hight buttes and cliff faces, hunting rodents and small birds. Prairie falcons can dive (or stoop) at speeds approaching 200 miles and hour.
