Falcons

D. Pineo / The Peregrine Fund

From the 1950s to the mid-1990s, no wild Aplomado Falcons were born in the U.S. Last month, with a lot of help from the Boise-based Peregrine Fund, the 500th Aplomado Falcon nestling was banded in southern Texas. How did baby falcons born in Boise in the 1980s and 1990s help bring the population back from the brink?

On Thursday's Idaho Matters, we discuss efforts to preserve eagles, hawks, falcons and other native birds of prey.

What can the world’s largest falcon tell us about climate change? That’s the question one Boise researcher is asking in an article published this month in Audubon Magazine.

Bryce Robinson is a Gyrfalcon field researcher and a graduate student at Boise State University. Working with the Peregrine Fund, he’s been studying Gyrfalcons in western Alaska for two years. Robinson studied the birds for his Master’s thesis.
