Being a member of the genus Falco, the peregrine falcon exhibits many of the generic characteristics of falcons. It has long slender wings, a short tail, curved beak and sharp talons. Peregrine falcons are found perched high in trees and cliff sides in open areas like grasslands, tundra and meadows. More

The Peregrine Falcon became an endangered species in many areas due to the use of pesticides, especially DDT. Since the ban on DDT from the beginning of the 1970s onwards, the populations recovered, supported by large scale protection of nesting places and releases to the wild.

A: Peregrine falcons banded in North America typically receive 2 leg bands-one on each leg. The first band is a U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service (USFWS) band which contains a number unique to that individual falcon (similar to a Social Security number). The numbers are small and hard to read unless you have the bird in hand. The color of this band can help identify the geographic region where the bird was banded. For example, USFWS bands used on Ohio falcons are purple. More

Endangered Peregrine Falcons Nesting in Buffalo, New York - The Peregrine Falcon, fastest bird in the sky, came dangerously close to extinction in New York state many years ago. Despite being the fastest animal on the planet, their speed did not allow them to escape the dangers of one of mankind's devious creations. Their numbers were decimated due to pesticides ingested while eating, thereby causing their egg shells to become weak and overly fragile. More
