Aplomado Falcon

The Aplomado Falcon, Falco femoralis, is a medium-sized falcon of the Americas. The species' largest contiguous range is in South America, but not in the deep interior Amazon Basin.

It is very slender, long-winged, and long-tailed, the size of a small Peregrine Falcon, at 12-16 in (30-40 cm) long and with an average wingspan of about 36 in (90 cm), but only half the weight, at about 7.3-10.8 oz (208-305 g) in males and 9.6-16 oz (271-460 g) in females. In adult birds, the upperparts are dark blue-grey, as is much of the head, with the usual falcon "moustache" contrasting sharply with the white throat and eye stripe. The upper breast continues the white of the throat; there are black patches on each side of the lower breast that meet in the middle; the belly and thighs, below the black patches, are light cinnamon. The tail is black with narrow white or grey bars and a white tip. The cere, eye-ring, and feet are yellow or yellow-orange.

Except that females are bigger than males, the sexes are similar. Juvenile birds are very similar to adults, but their upperparts and belly band are blackish brown, the chest is streaked with black, the white on the head and breast is buffy, and the cinnamon on the under parts is paler, as are the feet.
