Well there is Falco peregrinus or Peregrine Falcon. One of my favorites because of its history, there was a point in time where only royalty was allowed to handle these birds, also they are used heavily in cities to keep pigeon populations ubder control. Motherfucking contract killer if birds. The other would be Pandion haliaetus or Osprey, this birds are endlessly facsinating, they have a wrist like segment on their wings which allows them to completely submerge themselves and yet be able to fly out of the water, something the Bald Eagle cannot do. Their talons also clamp onto their prey and they actually position the fish so that they can fly more aerodynamically. Because their talons clamp down and cannot be undone until they land if an Osprey misjudges its prey and it is to heavy to pull out the Osprey will stay underwater and die. I guess I might have gone a bit long on this.
