Sire is a tiercel anatum peregrine falcon who arrived in 2017 from a facility that breeds raptors for the sport of falconry. He has a bright future ahead as an educational ambassador and also as a hunting bird. In this photo he is a youngster at only 4 months of age. Stay tuned for future photos as his mature coloration will come in after his first summer molt and he will be a bird of a different feather! Peregrine falcons are the fastest animal in the world having been clocked at 249 mph in a stoop or dive. It’s just amazing!
