The peregrine falcon (Falco peregrinus), also known as the peregrine, and historically as the duck hawk in North America, is a widespread bird of prey in the family Falconidae. A large, crow-sized falcon, it has a blue-grey back, barred white underparts, and a black head.


The Peregrine Falcon: The fastest diving bird; photographed here, tucked into a dive that will last seconds... Due to its great height and reach around 389 km/h (conversion 389 km/h = 241.71339 mph!)
