How Peregrine Falcons Thrive in Cities
This family of peregrine falcons is taking advantage of urban Chicago's resources.
Peregrine falcons only need two things to really prosper: high spots to nest and flying birds to hunt for food. Cities have many tall buildings and a wealth of birds, so they’re wonderful places for peregrines to be. In Chicago, as many as six peregrine nests can be found in 1 square mile of downtown real estate.
