About The Peregrine Falcon

Peregrine Falcons are widely distributed. An aerial hunter, the Peregrine feeds predominantly on avian species and is well known for its tremendous speed when stooping on prey. The population decline of Peregrines in the 1960's caused an environmental awakening with both public and scientific audiences.
