Wikipedia article

This article is about the current version of DF.
A small bird of prey that is capable of great speed. They dive on unsuspecting vermin.


Peregrine falcons are small birds who can be found in almost every biome, excluding oceans, glaciers, and tropical rain forests. They spawn one at a time and occasionally dive down from the sky to kill vermin on the ground, being harmless to a dwarf and benign to other creatures. Females are known as peregrine falcons, while males are known as tiercel peregrines. All peregrine falcons are born with Legendary skill in climbing.

Peregrine falcons can be captured with cage traps and trained into low-value pets. They can be put into nest boxes in order to be part of a fort's egg production, but hatching them for meat is worthless - peregrine falcons are too small to produce anything but a skull. While they are the fastest birds in real life, reaching dive speeds of 200+ mph (320 km/h), Dwarf Fortress does not handle gaits faster than 87 km/h, instead using this as maximum flight speed, which nonetheless makes them the fastest fliers in the game.

Some dwarves like peregrine falcons for their ability to dive through the air.

Admired for its ability to dive through the air.
