Peregrine Falcon !!!

The Peregrine Falcon is a sandy brown with black wings and markings, and a touch of yellow. It's a big bird even for a bird of prey and is 15 to 21 inches.
The Peregrine Falcon doesn't really ever talk in it's ruff cackling voice. Only when it's in it's nest. Other wise it prefers to go quietly along on it's silent wings.
The Peregrine lives in open places beside streams lakes and rivers.
It lives a lot on the coast line of America from Virgina to Texas. An then from all over Alaska down along the coast of Canada down to California. It all so makes a line from Montana down to New Mexico.

Peregrine Falcons are known for making good hunting pets. Not so much anymore but they where used a lot by knights when they would go hunting .
Once in 1595 the king of England lost his beloved Peregrine Falcon. Because it was the king's everyone was looking for it.
But because his Falcon was tagged (he tagged all his favorite birds) his Peregrine falcon was finally found 1,300 miles away in a little island called Malta.
