More ex- tensive surveys on the Labrador coast identified a significant breeding population (Lemon and Brazil , J. Brazil, pers. comm.). Here, we present the results of the Canadian peregrine falcon sur-.

      Since , peregrine falcon breeding sites have been documented in Arizona, New Mexico and western Texas. Eyries were found in either riverine or montane canyons, habitats which supported dense and diverse avian prey and provided structural characteristics that may increase prey vulnerability. Approximately 85% of the sites visited each year were occupied. Subjects: Alberta Butterflies Grassland ecology Monitoring Parkland Region Parkland Region (Alta.)

      The peregrine falcon is a raptor, or bird of prey. Adults have blue-gray wings, dark brown backs, a buff colored underside with brown spots, and white faces with a black tear stripe on their cheeks. They have a hooked beaks and strong talons. Their name comes from the Latin word peregrinus, which means "to wander." Peregrines are the fastest animals on the planet – they are able to dive at. Very few peregrine falcons have been sighted during spring cliff surveys from March- May from at Shenandoah National Park. Those that were sighted were all solitary birds. The Park hacked, released, and successfully fledged 37 young peregrine falcons from to However, in June , a sub- adult male falcon.

Coastal birds prey on ducks and shorebirds, and in Washington, many colonial seabirds nesting on islands off the coast fall prey to Peregrine Falcons as well. Peregrine Falcon These falcons are formidable hunters that prey on other birds (and bats) in mid-flight.

Peregrines hunt from above and, after sighting their prey, drop into a steep, swift dive. Since then, over wild peregrine falcon chicks have fledged in Massachusetts.

The Peregrine Falcon was removed from the federal Threatened and Endangered Species List inand downlisted from Endangered to Threatened on the New Hampshire T&E List in September Volunteers can learn more about becoming involved in our on-going monitoring and management of Peregrine Falcons by contacting raptor specialist Chris.Monitoring for a wide-ranging species such as the peregrine falcon will be a complex undertaking.

The proposed plan designates five geographical regions within the United States for surveys. Each territory would be visited twice, once during late courtship, egg laying, or .Powerful and fast-flying, the Peregrine Falcon hunts medium-sized birds, dropping down on them from high above in a spectacular stoop.

They were virtually eradicated from eastern North America by pesticide poisoning in the middle 20th century. After significant recovery efforts, Peregrine Falcons have made an incredible rebound and are now regularly seen in many large cities and coastal areas.
