Peregrine perching on a branch

Peregrine Falcon
(Falco peregrinus)

The Peregrine Falcon could be described as the world’s most successful flying bird. Cosmopolitan in distribution, and with 19 distinct races, its performance as a flier is scarcely equalled by any other bird. The peregrine in stooping flight is the world’s fastest animal, and no description can convey its drama. Estimates of the speed achieved are put at well over 300kph. Its vision is stunningly powerful and still not fully understood. The peregrine has a very high density of receptors and other adaptations that maximise visual acuity. The placement of its eyes gives the species a high degree of binocular vision facilitating a precise judgment of distance.
