YouTube Saturday - Peregrine Falcon & Goshawk on Camera


The Peregrine Falcon is one the fastest animal on the planet, able to reach speeds close to 200mph during their impressive stoops. This BBC production shows the Peregrine like you've never seen it before. Using tiny spy cameras attached bird head, you really get a sense of the awesome speed of these beautiful birds. In the second part of the video, see the impressive Goshawk manoeuvre through dense woodland.

I took the picture above during a visit to Grouse Mountain in Vancouver, with the Peregrine visible on the top right after swooping down at high speed. For more information on the Peregrine Falcon, click here to see a previous Frog Blog post.
