They recorded the fastest dive speed at 242 miles per hour (367 km/h). Peregrine falcons are the most widely distributed bird of prey in the world.

A bird of prey hunts other birds. Peregrine falcons are found on every continent except Antarctica. They live mostly along mountains ranges, river valleys, and coastlines. Some migrate long distances from their wintering areas to their summer nesting areas.Peregrine falcons are crow-sized. They catch their prey in mid-air.

The males weigh 440 to 750 grams (0.97 to 1.71lb), the females 910 to 1,500 grams (2.0 to 3.3lb). They have a body length of 34 to 58 cm (13 to 23 in) and a wing span of around 80 to 120 cm (31 to 47 in). The females are 30% larger and 50% or more heavy. The females can catch bigger prey than the prey the males catch.They have a lifespan of 7 to 15 years. Some can live as long as 20 years. They mate for life and breed in the same territory each year. Without using nesting materials, they make a nest or scrape on ledges and in small caves located high on a cliff. Some use man-made structures such as bridges and skyscrapers to nest.Author’s Profile:Beethoven Asami SmithLives in Yokohama, JapanBorn in Japan in 1947 between American father and Japanese mother.Worked for IBM for 37 years.Awarded Annual Grand Prix from Nikon in the nature sciencecategory.Black belt in Judo.Took pictures of more than 2000 species in 43 countries for 44 years.Spent eight years taking pictures of the peregrine falcons in this bookin Kanagawa, Japan.
