Oman’s EA continues field surveys project for sooty falcons

Muscat: The islands located in the Muscat and South Al Batinah governorates in the Sultanate of Oman are among the most important breeding sites globally for the endangered medium-sized sooty falcon.

The Environment Authority continues to conduct field surveys for the sooty Falcon Survey Project in the Sultanate of Oman, and aims to identify the sooty Falcon’s numbers by installing identification rings on them and taking accurate measurements of the nests.

The project also tracks and monitors sooty falcon, including obtaining the information and data about its numbers, reproduction, diet, and challenges it faces, in cooperation with specialized local and international organizations.

The peregrine falcon falls into the category of species near the threat of extinction, due to the decline in its numbers at the global level. It breeds in the Middle East and northeastern Africa, and spends the winter on the southeastern coast of Africa and the Republic of Madagascar.

It is worth noting that field surveys project for the sooty falcons in the Sultanate of Oman are conducted annually in the months of May and October.
