PIC OF THE WEEK: 01/09/12 • PREVIOUS WEEKNEXT WEEKALL 2012 PICS

Bird Pic Of The Week

Peregrine Falcon

(Latin)

Where: Indian River County, FL • Blue Cypress Lake

Notes: This bird is one of my all time favorites ever since I was a boy back in the early 1970s. This species comes with its own credentials too. It is the fastest bird on Earth! They are known to reach around 220 miles per hour in a characteristic hunting dive. This falcon is known for its ability to snatch a flying bird while descending like a rocket from high in the sky towards its prey. The Peregrine Falcon became an endangered species because of pesticides, especially DDT in the 1950s. Since the ban of DDT since the early 1970s and large-scale protection of nesting places, populations have begun to recover but it is still on the Federal Endangered Species List (since 1975). The male and female have similar markings and plumage, with the female measuring up to 30% larger than the male. This "dimorphism" in size occurs in many other raptor species as well. The latin name "Peregrinus," means traveler.
