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.
Bird lovers can get a close-up look at a pair of peregrine falcons nesting in downtown St. Paul.
In the 1960s, they were an endangered species, threatened by the pesticide DDT. But now peregrine falcons have made an amazing comeback.
