4.710 mach is about fourteen-and-a-half times as fast as a Peregrine Falcon.
In other words, the speed of a Peregrine Falcon is 0.069 times that amount.
(a.k.a. Peregrine, a.k.a. Duck Hawk, Falco peregrinus)
The Peregrine Falcon can reach speeds of up to 0.3260 mach when diving. Falcons are sometimes sent to scare smaller birds away from airports to improve air traffic safety and were used in World War II to intercept carrier pigeons used by enemy forces.
