Peregrine Falcon

PEREGRINE FALCON ( શાહીન, ભેરી) When we heard that word our mind thinks about speed. The peregrine is famous for its speed, reaching over 322 km/h (200 mph) during its high speed dive making it the fastest member of the animal kingdom. According to a National Geographic TV programme, the highest measured speed of a peregrine falcon is 389 km/h (242 mph). Peregrine means ‘on a journey ‘or ‘wandering ‘, attributed to the falcons long distance migration. Peregrine Falcon is winter visitor in Indian subcontinent and also resident bird. We were already trying to search this bird many times. Each time when we visit LRK we asked our guide about this bird and after searching a lot in rann we find many of other raptors except Peregrine Falcon. During this winter season we went to Nalsarovar for the Small Pratincole. While going towards that place we saw Peregrine Falcon. But unaware of its ID due to its immature stage. Again in same season we encounter this beauty in LRK
