Product Abstract

The Gyrfalcon, the largest falcon, is an iconic bird of the circumpolar arctic and subarctic. This species nests primarily on precipitous cliff faces and typically utilizes nests built by other species (particularly Common Raven, Golden Eagle, and Rough-legged Hawk) (Booms et al. 2008). Gyrfalcon main prey includes bird species ranging in size from passerines to geese while ptarmigan are the preferred prey. Although not well documented, in winter this species moves south throughout Canada and sometimes into the northern lower 48. Current population on the North Slope (tundrius subspecies) is estimated at 250 breeding pairs (USFWS 2000).
