Falcons: Images and Information.
- Falcons are intelligent birds of prey with pointed wings, notches in their bills called a tomial tooth, nostrils that baffle air and they are all diurnal.
- They are found on six of the seven continents.
- They fly at high speeds and can change direction rapidly.
- Female falcons are generally larger than the males.
- Kestrels are the smallest and the Gyrfalcon is the largest of the Falconidae.
- Peregrine Falcons can stoop at over 200 miles per hour and as such are the fastest moving creatures on Earth.
I hope you enjoy viewing my falcon photos.
