ABOUT PEREGRINE FALCONS
Peregrine falcons hunt by soaring from tall cliffs at high speeds and killing prey in mid-air – mostly medium-sized birds. They often nest in tall city buildings like the Indiana Michigan Power Center building, which offers a cliff-like vantage point, few natural predators, and access to water and food such as pigeons and starlings.
In North America, peregrine falcons were once on the Endangered Species List due to exposure to pesticides such as DDT. In part because of efforts to protect them, peregrine falcons are now on the upgraded Threatened List.
