Falco peregrinus.  The peregrine falcon is a well respected falconry bird due to its strong hunting ability, high trainability, versatility, and in recent years availability via captive breeding. It is effective on most game bird species from small to large.  This magnificent carving details the Halcon down to the folds of it's feathered wings, up to it's hooked beak and back down to it's curved talons.  This piece takes our breath away for it's carved wing and tail feathers and brilliant plumage patterns in four tonal ranges.
