730 yards per second is about six times as fast as a Peregrine Falcon.
In other words, it's 6.180 times the speed of a Peregrine Falcon, and the speed of a Peregrine Falcon is 0.1620 times that amount.
(a.k.a. Peregrine, a.k.a. Duck Hawk, Falco peregrinus)
The Peregrine Falcon can reach speeds of up to 118 yards 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.
