Peregrine falcons (Falco peregrinus)
… are the fastest members of the animal kingdom. When preying on other birds, peregrines can dive through the air at speeds of over 200 mph! Usually, the impact from the dive (or stoop) will kill or stun the prey, and then the peregrine will retrieve the prey in mid-air. This fearless species also happens to be one of the most common and widespread birds of prey in the world.
