Peregrine Falcons

Three Peregrine Falcons are out of their nest on the cliffs of Torrey Pines State Park in La Jolla, Cal. They are flying along the cliffs and landing on trees above the beach and the parents are bringing them prey (small birds) which they transfer in mid-air. The young ones are play fighting and practicing their acrobatic flying skills like tiny jet fighters. Adults can reach over 220 mph in a dive when catching prey in mid-air.
