10 Fastest bird in the World (average speed)
But before ... you need to explain this:
The Peregrine Falcon is the fastest when it dives but that is not its true speed. (Can reach speed of over 320 Km an hour when diving for prey). When flying i.e if a Peregrine Falcon was to try and catch another bird in flight then the Falcom can not catch a Swift.
A Peregrine Falcon is usually clocked at about 50-60 MPH during average flight speeds.
A Swift depending on breed can move at about 80-100 MPH Average.
A Swift is the fastest animal on earth over distance that is Even faster than a cheetah on speed constant.

The Cheetah can reach a average of 70 MPH over a short burst, but as far as maintaining longer distances it averages down to 45 MPH which is still very fast.
