RESEARCH

PEREGRINE FALCON


The Peregrine Falcon remains a species at risk in parts of North America, and while the population has recovered well from historic lows, some aspects of its nesting and migratory behaviour remain incompletely understood.  MRF is focusing its efforts on complementing existing research and management programs, with a particular emphasis on improving our knowledge of urban-nesting pairs.  Current activities include the banding of Peregrine Falcons in Quebec, while previous research included satellite tracking of juveniles in New York; details are available in the project outline section, and on our Rochester page, detailing the tracking of juvenile peregrines from Rochester, New York.
