Peregrine Falcon: Falco peregrinus


As your eyes scan the skies for interesting birds, the peregrine falcon will be distinguished by its typical falcon silhouette - long, pointed wings and long thin tail - and by the dark feathers on its head and nape, which resemble a hood or helmet. A distinctive black wedge extends below the eye.
