  • Can dive up to 250 MPH.
  • Lives in either cities or cliffs in the wild
  • These Falcons Were once endangered because of DDT (a chemical used to get rid of bugs)
  • DDT was banned, and people have started programs to nest Peregrines and they are no longer endangered.
  • The first picture below are Peregrine Falcon Chicks that I screen shoted live in Ohio.
  • The second is another live Falcon cam just outside of the nest in the first picture. I used quick picture tools to combine the pictures.
