Additional Information


"Reaching speeds of 200 miles per hour, the Peregrine Falcon is famous as one of the world's fastest birds. However, its penchant for choosing inaccessible places to breed, feed and roost means that few people are well acquainted with its habits and behaviour. Patrick Stirling-Aird offers a window into that rarely seen world thanks to this beautifully written text - covering 19 races and describing every aspect of the Peregrine Falcon's life - complemented by excellent photography depicting the birds hunting, courting and raising their young." Chapters include:- The falcon family; Introducing the peregrine falcon; Peregrine populations and distribution; Homes and meals; Breeding cycle; Neighbours, enemies and friends; Peregrines and humans; Future threats and opportunities; Peregrine watching.
