Peregrine Falcon - Baltimore, Maryland
Peregrine Falcon - description
This nesting peregrine falcon is located high on the 33rd floor of the Transamerica skyscraper in downtown Baltimore, where the nesting couple God and Barb have successfully raised many young for several years.
This building first became a falcon's home in 1977 when the Peregrine Fund released a captive female falcon named Scarlett. In 1984 she successfully mated with a wild falcon and raised her first wild-born chick in 30 years in the urban east coast!
