The name falcon is used to describe the hawks, birds of prey with pointed wings and strong swift flight, of the family Falconidae which contains some sixty species but, more usually, to the true falcons - the thirty-five species of the genus Falco.

Falcons are distinguished from other hawks by their longer pointed wings which give them greater speed in flight.

In the British Isles, the small kestrel (Falco tinnunculus) is the commonest bird of prey.

The family contains almost sixty species known as falcons although the name is more strictly used for the thirty-five species of the genus Falco or the true falcons. All these hawks have pointed wings and are strong and swift fliers. The peregrine falcon Falco peregrinus, a hawk about the size of a crow, is typical of the family.
