Jake morphing falcon

The Peregine Falcon is Jake's Flight Morph. It's also James's flight morph.

Section headingEdit

The peregrine falcon (Falco peregrinus), also known as the peregrine, and historically as the duck hawk in North America, is a widespread bird of prey in the family Falconidae. A large, crow-sized falcon, it has a blue-grey back, barred white underparts, and a black head and "moustache". As is typical of bird-eating raptors, peregrine falcons are sexually dimorphic, females being considerably larger than males. The peregrine is renowned for its speed, reaching over 320 km/h (200 mph) during its characteristic hunting stoop (high speed dive), making it the fastest member of the animal kingdom. According to a National Geographic TV programme, the highest measured speed of a peregrine falcon is 389 km/h (242 mph).[9][10]

The peregrine's breeding range includes land regions from the Arctic tundra to the tropics. It can be found nearly everywhere on Earth, except extreme polar regions, very high mountains, and most tropical rainforests; the only major ice-free landmass from which it is entirely absent is New Zealand. This makes it the world's most widespread raptor and one of the most widely found bird species. In fact, the only land-based bird species found over a larger geographic area is not always naturally occurring but one widely introduced by humans, the rock pigeon, which in turn now supports many peregrine populations as a prey species. Both the English and scientific names of this species mean "wandering falcon", referring to the migratory habits of many northern populations. Experts recognize 17 to 19 subspecies which vary in appearance and range; there is disagreement over whether the distinctive Barbary falcon is represented by two subspecies of Falco peregrinus, or is a separate species, F. pelegrinoides. The two species' divergence is relatively recent, during the time of the last ice age, therefore the genetic differential between them (and also the difference in their appearance) is relatively small. It has been determined that they are only approximately 0.6–0.8% genetically differentiated.



Jake got this morph right before the events of The Visitor. The Animorphs are all out together flying in the bird-of-prey morphs that they have acquirred. Jake is a Peregrine Falcon, Rachel is a Bald Eagle, and Cassie and Marco are both Ospreys. Tobias helps Rachel get the hang of flying and everyone enjoys the experience. Later in The Sacrifice , James claimed this as his Flight Morph.


The Peregine Falcon is Jake'sFlight Morph. It's also James's flight morph. This morph have been used in almost every book. This is smallest Flight Morph out of all the Animorphs. But, it is the fastest of all the bird morphs. James is the only Auxiliary Animorph to have this morph.
