The Saker falcon is spotted in part of Croatia year round, meaning that some birds winter here. Croatia lies along the migration path of the Saker falcon, and there is data for the region of Ravni Kotari, lying along the migratory path and as a possible wintering ground. The newest finding in this region is a male found at Dikla near Zadar. Recent satellite monitoring of Saker falcons confirm that birds nesting to the north often pass through this region. Further research was conducted during 2007–2009, confirming that the Saker falcon regularly nests in eastern Croatia.
