Giant peregrine falcons are enlarged cousins of the common peregrine falcon, found in most savage biomes. Despite being nearly twice the size of the average dwarf, these somewhat small giants are as benign as their original counterparts, spending their time diving down to kill vermin in the surface, though their larger size means they can potentially scare livestock and cause job cancellations from dwarves venturing outside. Like normal falcons, males of the species are known as giant tiercel peregrins. All giant peregrine falcons are born with Legendary skill in climbing.
Like their small cousins, one can capture giant peregrine falcons with cage traps and train them into pets, who possess the standard high value of a giant creature. They are not any better than normal peregrine falcons when it comes to laying eggs, though they differ for being actually useful for a meat industry, being large enough to produce meat, bones and fat when butchered. Giant peregrine falcons are also exotic mounts, so you may see elves riding them into battle in the event of a siege, which coupled with their incredible flying speed may lead to unexpected amounts of fun.
Some dwarves like giant peregrine falcons for their ability to dive through the air.
