Peregrine Falcon

Falco peregrinus


Medium sized Falcon with dark head and mustache. Preys from flying high and hitting it's prey from above and knocking it to the ground.


Prefers open areas where it can search for prey. This one was found hunting on a beach.


As we approached the beach it took off. Not sure what bird it took. Most likely by the color a Tern. I only saw Terns and Gulls on the beach matching the color.
