The peregrine also known 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. As is typical of bird-eating raptors, peregrine falcons are sexually dimorphic, with females being considerably larger than males.. The peregrine is renowned for its speed, reaching over 320 km/h (200 mph) during its characteristic hunting stoop (high-speed dive), making it the fastest member of the animal kingdom.[7][8] According to a National Geographic TV program, the highest measured speed of a peregrine falcon is 389 km/h (242 mph)

The Four Keys to ID

  • Size & Shape
    Peregrine Falcons are the largest falcon over most of the continent, with long, pointed wings and a long tail. Be sure to look at shape as well as size—long primary feathers give the Peregrine a long-winged shape.As with most raptors, males are smaller than females, so Peregrines can overlap with large female Merlins or small male Gyrfalcons.

  • Behavior

    Peregrine Falcons catch medium-sized birds in the air with swift, spectacular dives, called stoops.In cities they are masterful at catching pigeons. Elsewhere they feed especially on shorebirds and ducks.

    They often sit on high perches, waiting for the right opportunity to make their aerial assault.

  • Look for Peregrine Falcons perching or nesting on skyscrapers, water towers, cliffs, power pylons, and other tall structures.If a mudflat full of shorebirds and ducks suddenly erupts from the ground, scan the skies.

    A Peregrine (or Merlin) is probably in the area. Peregrines can be seen all over North America, but they are more common along coasts.
