The global population of Sooty Falcons is declining. One tenth of the total population of these migratory birds nest and brood amidst the island cliffs of the Sultanate of Oman. This documentary film follows these majestic flyers as they migrate across spectacular panorama views of Oman's al-Hajar mountains and Rub al-Khali desert. The intrepid birds continue to fly south along the African coast to Madagascar where they winter. It is a journey the Omani-appointed research team also endured as they raced to film and study this elusive falcon in order to learn ways to protect and preserve this special population of Sooty Falcons in Oman.
