Nice work, Seglea. Alas, they live a bit far from me, so I can't hope to supply a picture. Tannin

A little problem[edit]

There is a Cryptic Forest Falcon article, but its link says it doesn't exist. Why? Shrewpelt 19:40, 12 August 2007 (UTC)


I have spend years within the range of these species and had the luck of seeing all of them. Despite this, I have never heard anyone ever referring to any of these as harrier-hawks (also pretty unlikely considering their very non-harrier behavior!). I have also been unable to find a reference supporting this claim. I have therefore removed the section claiming that they sometimes are called harrier-hawks. If you have a reference supporting it, feel free to re-add w. ref. Rabo3 (talk) 01:04, 16 January 2008 (UTC)

Hyphenated form[edit]

as these are polyborine rather than falconine ("true") falcons -- and as the specific entries linked to herein use the hyphen -- the hyphenated form of the name, "forest-falcon", seems to be the preferred label for this group. is there anyone who feels that the article title itself shouldn't reflect this, i.e., Forest-falcon instead of Forest falcon? - Μετανοιδ (talk, email) 02:50, 28 January 2010 (UTC)
