The Peregrine Falcon is very cosmopolitan and is found throughout the world. See the distribution map at xeno-canto. Many sub-species are migratory and, in South America, it is seen usually during the summer when birds from North America have moved south.
|It is extremely fast which it has to be since its main source of food is birds. Photos 1 and 2 were taken at Murici, Alagoas, Brazil. Given that there are some very rare birds in the region of Murici, the presence of this Peregrine falcon is not altogether good news!|
|Photos 3 and 4 show a Peregrine Falcon which was chasing a Carunculated Caracara which, in turn, was chasing a Black-chested Buzzard-eagle. It looked as though they were playing a game.|
