Peregrine Falcons

Peregrine Falcons

Peregrine falcons return to the same nesting site each year. Some sites have been used for centuries by multiple generations.

Peregrine Falcons

Peregrine falcon chicks, called eyases, eat an incredible amount of food – in six days, they double their weight. At three weeks, they are ten times their size at birth.

Peregrine Falcons

Peregrine falcons  may travel widely outside the nesting season- in fact, their scientific name comes from the Latin words ‘falco’, meaning ’hook-shaped,’ possibly referring to the beak or claws, and ‘peregrinus’, meaning ’to wander.’
