Falcons are any one of 37 species of raptors in the genus Falco, widely distributed on all continents of the world except Antarctica. The falcons are the largest genus in the Falconinae subfamily of Falconidae, which itself also includes another subfamily comprising caracaras and a few other species. All these birds kill with their beaks, using a "tooth" on the side of their beaks — unlike the hawkseagles, and other birds of prey in Accipitridae, which use their feet.
