Cherkaoui, I., Bouajaja, A. & Hanane, S. 2013. Evidence of increasing Lesser Kestrel Falco naumanni populations in Morocco (North Africa): a confirmation of “Least Concern” conservation status. Bird Study 60: 423-427.
The number of Lesser Kestrel Falco naumanni breeding pairs in Morocco has varied significantly and positively over thirteen years (1998–2010), between six colonies and over the 13-year period at each colony. The mean growth rate was λ = 1.13 ± 0.02. This positive trend is consistent with the current Least Concern conservation status of the species in the IUCN Red List.
