I was looking at birds in Puerto Rico because of my spanish assignment and I found this little guy in the results:
Is it a Peregrine Falcon or another kind of falcon? I went to the webpage and it was just talking about Harpy Eagles. But in my opinion, if it was talking about them, it should have an image of a white and grey/black eagle instead of a falcon.
I know it can't be a hawk because its beak is too short/rounded (and I just saw a hawk outside). It's definitely too thin (wrong word but I'm bad at wording) as well.
But anyway, is this beautiful bird of prey a peregrine or another falcon? I'm wanting to say it's a Peregrine, but I'm not sure. I think they have black heads?
I have flown a peregrine and a few peregrine hybrids. They make quite large circles and come in very fast when they do. Sakers tend to disappear and reappear. Gyrs are heavier birds and aren't as dramatic in flight. The aplomado is very unique and flies similar to a kestrel. Lanners are by far the best to fly for me though. They will roll over right on top of you with the sun right behind them to blind you and literally flip mid flight. Such a stylish bird. Peregrine x lanner hybrids are spectacular. Fast AND stylish
