Swellow=Pidgeot=Staraptor>Noctowl>Unfezant>Talonflame, in my opinion. (Based off design.)

Design-wise (don't have a whole lot of experience in the competitive scene): Talonflame > Swellow > Pidgeot > Noctowl > Staraptor > Unfezant
I'll give Unfezant some credit and say that it's last mostly because I haven't played Gen 5 yet.

Easily Staraptor. An Intimidate/Choice Band one (like the one I use) can potentially switch in safely against Talonflame that isn't Banded or Life Orbed. One Return will OHKO Talonflame without taking recoil. 1-v-1, that particular Staraptor wins. Talonflame can't switch into Staraptor at all.

Plus, Staraptor looks badass.

No contest.
Staraptor looks cooler and can actually OHKO stuff. Time and time again, my Talonflame fails to OHKO things, and then it gets OHKO'd. On top of that, it's far too frail to survive a turn to SD. Even if it does survive the SD turn, it won't survive its own attack afterward, nor will it be able to survive an attack while using Roost. Really, Talonflame is nowhere near as impressive as people make it out to be.

Pretty much. I would put Talon ahead of Noctowl. The only one whose design I dislike is Unfezant. Also I don't think this gen has been kind to Staraptor, who looked much more kickass standing rather than flying, and Swellow, who looks glitched to hell.

You aren't using talonflame correctly if you expect it to get OHKO's

Unfezant and Talonflame are more better competitive-wise than Noctowl and Pidgeot.
