Did you know peregrine falcons...
- Don't build nests?
They lay 2 - 4 reddish, dark flecked eggs in cliff hollows, bare rocky outcrops or tall building ledges with a bit of gravel to bumper the eggs.
- Are considered the fastest animal on earth?
Peregrine falcons have been clocked diving at 261 mph.
- Are "helmet heads"?
The markings of an adult peregrine falcon include a black helmet on the head, whitish neck and lightly barred breast.
