Peregrine Falcon

Our family went to the Waterfowl Festival in Easton last weekend.  Riverkeepers had a store where one of the members of the organization was displaying a peregrine falcon that he has had for six years.  He has trained it to hunt.  Peregrines were another species whose numbers fell precipitously with the use of DDT, but like the bald eagle, these beautiful birds are once again increasing in number.
