A falcon is any species of raptor in the genus Falco. The genus contains 37 species, widely distributed throughout Europe, Asia, and North America.
Adult falcons have thin tapered wings, which enable them to fly at high speed and to change direction rapidly. Fledgling falcons, in their first year of flying, have longer flight feathers which makes their configuration more like that of a general-purpose bird such as a broadwing. This makes it easier to fly while learning the exceptional skills required to be effective hunters as adults (source: Wikipedia).
Falcons are attractive, stealthy, and special. Their ecological successes in wild North America are modest but satisfactory and their haunting appearance reminds people of the market value of eco-activism.
