ABSTRACT
Falcon, a bird of prey. Falcons are commonly called hawks, but they differ from true hawks in several ways. The wings of falcons are long and pointed instead of short and rounded, and the upper part of the bill is notched instead of smooth. There are more than 60 species of falcons. The birds are found in all habitable parts of the earth.
