Falcons are Fast in More Ways than One

Everyone knows that peregrine falcons are fast flyers. Peregrines are the speediest birds on the planet.

But did you know they also grow quickly?

Fans of WoodmenLife’s falcon cam will tell you that the baby falcons change quite a bit day to day as they develop in the nest. In fact, falcons grow four times their size in the first two weeks of their lives!

Tune in often to the falcon cam over the next several weeks to see their incredible development.
