Kārearea - NZ Falcon

The Kārearea is New Zealand's only endemic falcon and the only remaining bird of prey endemic to New Zealand. A spectacular, lightening fast bird of prey, he frequents the Taieri Gorge and hills above the Strath Taieri. It is smaller than the more common Australian Harrier but no less territorial.
