I just spent about 6 days photographing the Peregrine Falcons at Torrey Pines St Park in La Jolla, Ca. The juvenile falcons are about 2 weeks out of their nest on the cliffs and are flying aerial acrobats. Peregrines are the fastest animal or bird on the planet with speeds clocked at over 250 mph in a dive. They prey on smaller birds by literally knocking them out of the sky and then catching them in their talons. Prey is passed to the juveniles in mid-air by the parents and also stolen from siblings in flight. The juveniles will be fed by parents for about a month and then will learn how to catch their own prey and move to their own territory and live independently.
