Peregrine falcons can chase their prey in level flight at 60 km/h, but when stooping or diving to catch it they reach much higher speed.

Other  high speed birds include buzzards, which can glide between 110 and 130 km/h.  Swallows are believed to be able to reach 160 km/h when migrating, but normally they do not fly faster than about 50 km/h.
