Date/Time

Mar 21, 2019
06:30 PM until 08:30 PM

Description

As Peregrine Falcons have recovered from endangered status in the 1990s-2000s, they have often been found nesting on bridges and skyscrapers. A Peregrine Falcon pair has taken up residence at UC Berkeley, fledging two chicks in 2017, and three in 2018. Citizen scientists led by UC Berkeley's Museum of Vertebrate Zoology (MVZ) with East Bay Regional Park District and Golden Gate Raptor Observatory, have monitored the Peregrines, enhancing their nest-site, watching threats, and providing information for captivated CAL falcon-spotters. The Cal Peregrine Team is working toward a web-cam to deepen our knowledge of these urban Peregrines, and to widen interest in these charismatic falcons.
