Peregrine Falcon


Bird of Prey
Originally uploaded by Victor Keech.

Able to dive at almost 200 miles per hour, the peregrine falcon is not only the fastest flying bird in the world, but the fastest animal on earth. The one pictured is one of the fine birds of prey to be found at the Thorpe Perrow Arboretum in North Yorkshire.
