890.80 feet per second is about two-and-a-half times as fast as a Peregrine Falcon
In other words, it's 2.51 times the speed of a Peregrine Falcon, and the speed of a Peregrine Falcon is 0.398 times that amount.
(a.k.a. Peregrine, a.k.a. Duck Hawk, Falco peregrinus)
The Peregrine Falcon can reach speeds of up to 355 feet per second 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.
