Bat Falcon
Bat falcon adult males measure 24-29 cm (8-10 in.) in length with a wingspan of 56-58 cm (18-19 in.) Females also range from 24-29 cm (8-10 in.) in length but have a larger wingspan, which ranges between 65 and 67 cm (21-22 in.) in length. The head and upper parts of their body are black, with grayish edging to contour the feathers from their upper back to tail coverts. Their throat and upper chest is white and tan extending around their neck. The lower breast and adbomen are black narrowly barred with white and cinnamon. The undertail coverts and thighs are chestnut. They have a long black tail with many fine white or gray stripes and buff tip. The bat falcon has deep brown irises that may help camouflage while hunting at night. They also have small hooked beaks with yellow cere and orbit.

The bat falcon appears to have a preference for consuming bats, although they do not make up the majority of its diet. Their diet consists mainly of small birds and large insects, which include dragonflies (Odonata), moths (Lepidoptera), large grasshoppers (Orthopera), Homoptera, and Hymenoptera. They perch high in the trees, on branches above the canopy and hunt by direct pursuit and stooping. Their flight is swift with powerful fast wing beats or quick wing beats followed by a glide. They are most active at dusk when the bats emerge.

Single birds but often pairs of this resident Trinidad species are seen mainly in the forested areas. Though they occur in unbroken forests, bat falcons seem to be able to adjust to human disturbance and are sometimes found to be more common in broken forest, which includes disturbed area, forest edge, road cuts, riverbanks, or cleared agricultural land with scattered trees.

Bat falcons primarily communicate through visual and vocal ways, often calling back and forth to their mate during breeding season with a high pitched "kiu-kiu-kiu-kiu". Courtship for the bat falcon begins in February or March, which is the middle of the dry season in Guatemala, Belize, and Mexico. In Trinidad, nesting begins in February, and in Colombia, breeding begins in February or March. In Venezuela, the bat falcon lays its eggs in March and in Guyana, in April. In Brazil, it will lay its eggs in August, the middle of dry season. Both parent will take an active role in protecting the nest, which may include chasing off other raptors. The male provides nearly all of the food during the nestling period.

Family - Falcons

Other Names - White throated Falcon

Latin Name - Falco rufigularis

Range - Found in Mexico, Central and South America. It ranges from eastern Colombia east to the Guianas and Trinidad, and south to southern Brazil and northern Argentina

I took a screen shot the other morning at day break which showed two Batties. One perched on the top and one on the bottom. Unfortunately, for reasons that I can not figure out, the file size was 148kb which is over the max allowed to post.

I will keep my eyes open for another opportunity as day time here is night time there!

I have noticed on the old M/F cam that there is a new structure on the right of the image. This I think is the new tower to support the H/R cam.

Could this be the reason why Battie and his mates have not been seen lately. They might be frightened of the new structure. Let's hope they soon get used to it an make a swift return.

This is one I took of Battie last year.

Did not know he/she was so famous.

Sent the photo to a bird expert who told me it was a Bat Falcon.

Should have asked you for the low down.
Nice bird though and loves watching the ships as I do.

Cheers,

Title: Re: Battie
Post by: Pinky and Perky on November 23, 2007, 04:37:21 PM
Yes this is a good web snap Phyllis.
Looks like Battie is in container city.
I had been waiting for hours and hours to see/web cam snap a container ship pass through,one I was missing to complete a collection of a shipping lines fleet.
The folks at Panama switched the camera to Battie as my ship arrived.
The container ship in the background is the one I wanted to snap,boy was I mad at the time :doh:.
Still I got a few nice shots of Battie...but have never seen that ship again :doh:...such is life.
Thanks Battie.
cheers,
Pinky and Perky
Title: Re: Battie
Post by: donkey oatay on November 24, 2007, 01:14:01 AM
Still no sign of Battie! I would be most interested to hear of any new sighting.

There are many people  who look at the M/F cam daily just to see Battie and his mates. It would be a great shame if they have been frightened away by the new H/R tower.

No. I don't think so. I hope nothing has happened to them. My time zone is 7 hours ahead of Panama therefore I can see if they are around during the night. Unfortunately they have not been seen for a few weeks.  >:(
