The falcon is a species of the raptor birds that belongs to the Genus Falco. These birds are so wild and hunt for prey to feed on them. They are known to possess long wings and strong beaks by which they crawl on the prey and tear the flesh with their long beaks. Falcons have tapered and thin wings by which, when they fully get matured, they fly with very high speed and can alter direction easily. The peregrine falcon is known to be the fastest bird and creature on earth with a speed of 322km/hr. Some other kinds of falcon are the Merlin, gyrfalcon, lanner, and hobbies that possess long and narrow wings, but they have a small body.

Falcons have a high sense of vision, equivalent to twice that of human. On the other hand, hawk refers to a species of bird that belongs to the Accipitridae subfamily. The hawks are generally larger than the falcons, and they have long tails with curve and smooth beaks. The hawks use their feet to catch and kill prey, using the talons on their feet.

Purchasing pillows can be a bit complicated when you do not know the difference between down and feathers. Down is the type of coverage that can be found in the lower portion of birds. This will usually cover the belly portion of birds which can make them not only very fluffy but also soft. Feathers are the outer covering that can protect birds.

The feathers are usually found in the wing and back portions of the bird. Some feathers will allow birds to repel water. Feathers can also be effective in helping birds fly. Feathers are usually harder as compared to down. This explains why pillows that are filled with down are more expensive as compared to pillows that are filled with feathers.

In English language, it is very easy to see words that have different spelling, meaning but the same sound. At times, you will see words that naturally shouldn't have the same sound but when you listen carefully to their real sound and transcription, they sound the same way. Actually these types of words are known as homophones. Homophones are words with the same sound but they differ in terms of spelling and meaning. Examples of these are pidgin and pigeon.


These are two different words but they have the same sound. Pigeon is a particular type of bird of the family of Columbidae. This type of bird can be found almost everywhere except for areas that are known for cold weather. Pidgin, on the other hand, is the mixture of two separate languages which is used by people of different languages as the neutral way of communication. Pidgin does not follow the formalized or right usage of two languages being joined together.

Bird vocalization includes both bird calls and bird songs. In non-specialized usage, bird songs are the sounds that are sweet to the human ear. In ornithology and birding, songs (moderately complex vocalizations) are distinguished by work from calls (generally simple vocalizations).

The distinction between songs and calls depends on multifaceted nature, length, and setting. Songs are longer and more perplexing and are related with romance and mating, while calls tend to serve such capacities as cautions or keeping individuals from a run in contact. Different authorities, for example, Howell and Webb (1995) make the distinction in light of capacity, with the goal that short vocalizations.
