The nesting site is located in the Cabañeros National Park
Cabañeros National Park is a Spanish national park in the central part of the country, in the Castile-La Mancha region. It lies approximately 60 km south of Toledo, in the Montes de Toledo (highest point of 1 448 m) in the Sierra del Chorito area. The aim of the park is to preserve the original Mediterranean forest with a number of rare species of plants and animals. The park has an area of 409 km² and was established in 1995.
The South Pox is very similar to the common kestrel, it differs in voice, shorter wings, shorter tail and light claws. The male has a dark spine without a dark spot, a bluish winged field, a blue head with gray faces (no beard), a downy spot on the lower and smaller. The bottom of the wings is light with dark toes. The female is very difficult to distinguish from female kestrel. It nests in colonies in towns, on cliffs, ruins, etc. In the Czech Republic it was nesting before the Second World War, since then it has only rarely been flying.
