Midwest Peregrine Society
Jackie Fallon is a falcon fan. The vice president of field operations for the Midwest Peregrine Society was up before sunrise last week to make a trip along U.S. Hwy. 61 and check on several peregrine falcon nesting sites.
In the 1960s, they were an endangered species, threatened by the pesticide DDT. But now peregrine falcons have made an amazing comeback.
The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources (DNR) has placed a live webcam in a peregrine falcon box in downtown St. Paul to give the public a view into the lives of the world’s fastest animal.
