The peregrine falcon, also known as the peregrine and duck hawk, is a crow-sized falcon, although the females are reasonably larger than males (go girl power!). It is known mostly for it's hunting stoop or high-speed dive, in which it reaches over 320 kilometres per hour! This makes it the fastest in the animal kingdom. It is found almost everywhere on earth except extreme polar regions, very high mountains, and most rainforests; it's also absent from New Zealand.
They eat mostly medium-sized birds, sometimes feasting on small mammals, small reptiles, and insects.
