Do you want songs specifically where the hawk is the central theme or are mentions enough? There are plenty of songs where they get a mention or are being included allegorically. The Pretty Grey Hawk is of the latter type as it is really a lover being described. Plenty of Lords in ballads have their hawks mentioned. Then there's 'Jolly Old Hawk' a carol similar to the Twelve Days of Christmas.

There is also a commonplace in many songs that mentions having the wings of an eagle and flying to a truelove who is far away, but other birds are also used in this.

Otherwise Googling ought to turn something up if there is anything.

And must it be peregrines or kestrels? If not there's 'The Gay Goshawk' (Child 96, I think)

There is some discussion of a song called THE KESTREL by Bob Hambleton in this thread; unfortunately, it doesn't have lyrics, but there are lyrics quoted from a different song.

Dave Goulder had a song called COLD KESTREL about finding a dead one. I think his web site (http://www.davegoulder.co.uk) has the lyrics but the site is temporarily down for maintenance.

There's a song on the Donovan album Hurdy Gurdy Man called "Peregrine Falcon".
