40 species of falcon live on all continents except for Antarctica. Thin, tapered wings allow them to fly fast and change direction quickly. Unlike hawks and eagles that kill with their feet, falcons use a tooth inside their beaks. Females are larger than males, allowing them a wider range of prey. Their vision is 2.6 times a normal human’s. To top it off, they move faster than any other creature at 390 km/h while diving.
The kestrel is a species of falcon in Scotland. The population of kestrels declined in the 70s, and now sits on the Amber List of endangered birds of the UK. Amber is the second most critical group. Click here to read more about the amber list.
