The Eurasian kestrel – Falco tinnunculus or Common kestrel is a small species of Type – diurnal-raptor of the Family Falconidae and the Order Falconiformes. It is widespread across the Old World. In the AWB Region it is a summer breeder to NE Turkey, the S Caucasus and NW Iran. Elsewhere in the region, apart from true deserts, it can be found as resident in suitable environments that provide enough small creatures for prey, in semi-deserts and upwards. But even in the central Sahara there are a few areas that serve small populations of wintering birds.
