Once almost extinct due to DDT pesticide use, peregrine falcons have made a remarkable comeback and can be seen nesting on skyscrapers and bridges throughout the New York area.

They swoop from great heights hitting the wing of their intended meal to disable the bird yet not injure themselves. The larger female will lay 3-4 eggs in March and the chicks will hatch approximately 30 days later.
Let’s hope another generation is in the works.
