Yummygal’s Fun Fact Friday

Yummygal’s Fun-Fact Friday~ The Peregrine Falcon

Today, I am talking about the endangered Peregrine Falcon. There are only about 3,000 in the US and Canada. The Peregrine are found all over the world excluding Antarctica.

These birds are the fastest animal in the world. They have been recorded at over 200 mph.

The Peregrine Falcon Exhibit at the Palmyra Cove

They are fast birdies. I would not like to mess with them. They eat rodents and other birds like pesky pigeons.

You can see an exhibit about these guys at the Palmyra Cove. They have a home on top of the Tacony-Palmyra Bridge. The Peregrine can also be found here via this link.

They are really neat to see and making their come back. Hopefully, won’t be endangered much longer.
