The Peregrine Falcon, a handsome hunter with a combination of blue-gray and brown feathers, is the world’s fastest bird with a peak of 200 miles an hour. This warrior is vicious with vicious talons and a sharp curved beak. To complete this stern look, the peregrine falcon has a white face with black tear stripe marks on their cheeks. They weigh about 2 lbs and what’s more, the female peregrine falcons happen to be slightly larger than their male counterparts. They feed on their fellow birds such as bats and attack their prey on the air.
