I was first impressed by this bird and it's speed when I saw it flying over a field in Maine. The Peregrine Falcon's species name, peregrinus, comes from the Latin word meaning "to wander," and true to its name, this formidable falcon wanders widely, and is found on every continent except Antarctica. They are known to make a steep dive from as high as 1,000 feet called a “stoop” and can reach over 200 miles per hour. I was able to identify this bird from it's long pointed wings, I now recognize it's distinctive call first and then I look for them in the area.
