Peregrine falcons are incredibly impressive hunters, and are one of the most unique species on the planet. This is because they are the fastest animals on earth! These skilled flyers are both impressive and adaptable to a number of different environments.
Peregrine falcons have dark, slate-colored feathers on their backs, and lighter cream-colored feathers on their stomachs. The lighter feathers are dappled with darker spots. They have long tail feathers that are dark colored, with a white band at the ends. Female peregrine falcons are approximately 30% larger than males, but they look very similar in color.
