Peregrine Falcon
The Peregrine Falcon (Falco peregrinus), also known as the Peregrine, 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 and "moustache". The Peregrine is renowned for its speed, reaching over 322 km/h (200 mph) during its characteristic hunting stoop, making it the fastest member of the animal kingdom.
The Peregrine's breeding range includes land regions from the Arctic tundra to the tropics. It can be found nearly everywhere on Earth, except extreme polar regions, very high mountains, and most tropical rainforests; the only major ice-free landmass from which it is entirely absent is New Zealand.
While its diet consists almost exclusively of medium-sized birds, the Peregrine will occasionally hunt small mammals, small reptiles, or even insects.
