The mechanical falcon is a new addition to the Predators’ equipment and was seen in 2010’s Predators. It was used by one of the Super Predators – the Falconer Predator. It’s not really a falcon but rather a flying reconnaissance machine that the Falconer Predator uses to spy on its prey from the skies. It is presumably connected to the Falconer Predator’s vision mode allowing him to see what the falcon sees. When the falcon returns to the Predator, it sits on his left shoulder.
