For your previous post, yes the structure of the saker is the important detail too I think. Also I think that some specialists could well differentiate the flight it self too. Wing-beats frequency, angle etc.

Hehehehhe ! China snowhite saker ? sounds like a washing powder.

On a serious note, my mentor says that saker color or variation is only aesthetic, and has nothing to do with the bird's capabilities. The ugliest (beauty lies in the eyes of beholder) falcon can produce magnificent maneuvers up there in the heavens, whereas the prettiest of em all could sit all day like a king doing nothing but blowing flies off its beak.

Atb. Choc.

A couple of pictures of sakers I have bred this season, nice form and colour very pleased with them.

These are pictures of a male sakeret which I lucky enough to bring in this season to go with a female which I kept back last season. Hopefully he will put more size into the young.

Awesome birds. Nice feather quality. One of the chicks looks really red like those sakers from Irßn and that area. Do you know were the parents of your birds come from ?
