Not only can falcons dive at 200 miles per hour and build nests atop skyscrapers, but the peregrine falcon has fought its way back from near extinction in parts of the United States. With a ban on DDT and the help of dedicated ornithologists, the peregrine has made a phenomenal comeback.
This book tells the inspiring story of Scarlett, a peregrine falcon who lived on a Baltimore skyscraper. It also includes a list of the best places to falcon-watch.
