    Hawks rather than falcons. They seem to have a glow around them. Would prefer to see them in a more rural habitat.

    These are falcons actually. Falco tinnunculus. They are very common even inside cities in the middle east.

    look like falcons to me, their wings crossover their tail when at rest.
    Again I'd to see them on a tree but hey you can hardly ask them to pose for you and a shot of a bird of prey is better than no shot

    yup, falcons. The comon kestrel. We got those at work too :) And for all i know, these are females. The males got more grey on their wings and head.
    And a nice shot, i never shot them in the wild. But maybe someday.
