Thread: Perigrene falcons, what do they taste like?

    Default Perigrene falcons, what do they taste like?

    I wonder how edible these falcons are.
    http://www.peregrinefund.org/explore.../peregrin.html

    MEASUREMENTS: The Peregrine Falcon has a body length of 15 - 20
    inches, a 3 1/2 foot wingspan, and weighs 1 1/4 - 2 3/4 pounds.
    Peregrine Falcon habitat mapHABITAT: Rivaled only by the Osprey, the
    Peregrine Falcon has one of the most global distributions of any bird
    of prey. This falcon is found on every continent except Antarctica,
    and lives in a wide variety of habitats from tropics, deserts, and
    maritime to the tundra, and from sea level to 12,000 feet. Peregrines
    are highly migratory in the northern part of their range.
    DIET: Peregrines chiefly hunt birds such as starlings, pigeons,
    blackbirds, jays, shorebirds, and waterfowl, but will rarely take
    mammals, reptiles, or insects. Peregrines may use a variety of hunting
    techniques, but typically prey is captured in the air after fast
    pursuit or a rapid dive to catch the prey.
    REPRODUCTION: Peregrine Falcons frequently nest near water on ledges
    of rocky cliffs or buildings, but occasionally will use abandoned
    stick nests of other species. They do not build nests, but scrape a
    small depression out of the soil. Peregrines lay 3 - 4 eggs, which are
    incubated for about 34 days. The young falcons fledge 5 - 6 weeks
    after hatching.
    NAME DERIVATION: The scientific name comes from the Latin words falco,
    meaning hook-shaped (falcate) and may refer to the beak or claws, and
    peregrinus, meaning to wander. Peregrines have also been called Duck
    Hawk, Great-footed Hawk, and Wandering Falcon.
    INTERESTING FACTS:

    * Peregrine populations were once endangered due to pesticides
    like DDT. DDT caused the female to lay thin-shelled eggs that were
    easily broken, killing the developing embryo inside. After the banning
    of DDT, in the United States, The Peregrine Fund released more than
    4000 captive-reared birds in 28 states over a 25 year period.

    * Many falconers prefer to use the Peregrine Falcon because of its
    spectacular high speed dives. The male bird is referred to as a
    tiercel and the female as a falcon.

    * Peregrine Falcons have adapted to living in many cities. Cities
    offer tall buildings with ledges for nesting, water sources, large
    populations of pigeons and starlings for food, and have few natural
    predators.

    Big deal. That doesn't mean I can't eat them. It only means that if
    they catch me I'm ****ed. I've been eating falcons ever since I saw
    'The Falcon and the Snowman.' What a tasty dish.

    Yeah and you're like not ****ed anyway. I've never been caught yet
    eating southern fried falcon. You're just a chicken ****; afraid of
    eating endangered species. What's the matter? You scared of the
    peregrine? You wimp mother of an asshole.

    I've eaten hawk, eagle, falcon and duck. Goose as well as gosling.
    I've cradled falcon in my hand, had one sit on my forearm, and made
    mad love to it. Once, a falcon tried to kill me by gouging out my
    eyes, but I was too fast for it and pounded it out before it had a
    chance. I like to beat on falcons. They are a formidable opponent.
    Are you?

    You'll spend many years in jail if for any reason you're caught with a
    Perigrene falcon's corpse, so wonder on.

    And I was thinking it was more like Bald Eagle. Goes to show ya--
    you just have to try these things for yourself.

    I'll bet I could prepare a dish where you couldn't pick out the falcon
    bits from the Panda.

    Perhaps... or is just into yanking chains.
    I rarely take PWI (posting whilst intoxicated) posts seriously,
    especially now that I so very rarely do it myself any more...
