Peregrine Falcon

Birding at Penampang, Kota Kinabalu Sabah on the November 19, 2009. The fastest flying bird in the world clocking at 90 mph (145 kph). There are even accounts of this raptor diving at speeds up to 200 mph (320 kph)..

Peregrine falcon was attacking Brahminy kite. The kite was very slow to avoid the falcon claws. The kite was not given a chance in the area of its teritory even kite was on the perch, the falcon made attacks and which finally the kite flew away from the area. Happy birding.
