I believe that the cell chemistry suggests that Falcons are more closely related to PARROTS than to other "hawks".  We'll see how that one holds up.  Meanwhile, we get to contemplate 200 MPH-flying carnivorous parrots.  Yike.

Just learned that the falcons have been separated from the rest of the hawks and placed after the woodpeckers!!! Is this insane or what!
