  1. I shall post random wiki facts daily now, take it like the whore you are!

    A falcon (/ˈfɔːlkən, ˈfæl-/) is any one of 37 species of raptors in the genus Falco, widely distributed on all continents of the world except Antarctica.

    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 make 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.

    The falcons are the largest genus in the Falconinae subfamily of Falconidae, which itself also includes another subfamily comprising caracaras and a few other species. All these birds kill with their beaks, using a "tooth" on the side of their beaks — unlike the hawks, eagles, and other birds of prey in Accipitridae, which use their feet.

  5. You say that like there's been more than two.

    This is interesting; more of a 'lesson of the day' than a quick fact, but yay, I learned stuff!
     
  6. Fair point, ma chere.

    ..probably not the falcon you are talking about. xD

    I do like this idea, though. It is fun to learn new things!
