the migration sensation

The peregrine falcon was only recently removed from the Endangered Species List. Because they are predators, falcons get sick when they eat smaller animals that have been exposed to fertilizer and other chemicals. Special breeding programs and laws against chemical use saved the peregrine falcon. A migratory bird, it flies south for the winter.

What's for dinner?

Falcons eat small birds, mammals and sometimes insects and reptiles.
