About this book

Please note, this is a reissue of New Holland's Peregrine Falcon.

Reaching speeds in excess of 200 miles per hour, the Peregrine Falcon is famous as the world's fastest bird. However, its penchant for choosing inaccessible places to breed, feed and roost mean that few people are well acquainted with its habits and behaviour. Peregrine Falcon offers a window into that rarely seen world, thanks to a combination of high quality images and beautifully written text, with chapters on subjects such as hunting, raising young and how populations around the world have rallied against the threat of extinction and are now prospering once again. The birds are further brought to life through a series of personal anecdotes from the author and photographers, which are woven into the text. Peregrine Falcon is part of a series that also includes the titles Barn Owl and Kingfisher.

Media reviews

"[...] Peregrine Falcon particularly helps to answer those commonly asked questions about Peregrines, from how much food do they need to eat each day, to what predators eat Peregrines? So, if you have a question to which you would like an answer, this is certainly the book for you and is sure to provide the information you want."
– Ed Drewitt, Ibis 157, 2015
