The Red-footed Falcon population in Voivodina shows a considerable decrease on a large temporal scale, however due to recent conservation measures, it seems to be stable in the past six years. Here I present the history of population estimates and results of partial surveys that have been carried out since 1909. I also show the details and results of conservation efforts recently implemented in the region. Recovery records of individually colour ringed birds indicate that the population breeding in northern Serbia is an integral part of the Carpathian Basin population and thus conservation management should be coordinated within a framework of international cooperation.
