Raptors... Which is your favorite???
 
Mine is a toss up between the bald eagle and the peregrine falcon. Lots of both round my parts!!!

I've got a pair of Red-tailed Hawks that nest on my property. If they're not out somewhere hunting, they scream at me when I leave the house. I always mutter back...something like "Yeah, yeah. I'm hurrying. Jeez."

Gotta be the peregrine. Something about 225+mph is just mind boggling. They also look so cool in flight. Around here you can see eagles, but way off and way up usually. Hawks are a bit more abundant, and really cool too. I know them from growing up in Georgia, but I didn't know much about peregrines until I moved up here and saw these "little" birds zipping around in the woods.

Yes, they are by far my favorite.

And the history of falconry is old. The best book on it was written some 800 years ago, and is still used.

Actually i think the latest was clocked at over 269 mph. Enough force to break a yotes back!!!
