Sierra Club Sierra Talks: Peregrine Falcon
The Peregrine Falcon – Fastest Animal in the World: This presentation illustrates the Peregrine’s highly specialized physical features, aerial skills, and adaptations required for capturing prey while reaching speeds over 200 miles an hour. Their history, courtship behaviors, and remarkable comeback from near extinction in the mid-1960s will be covered. Don Endicott has done two popular Sierra Talks programs previously. He monitors nesting Peregrine Falcons for the National Park Service and US Fish & Wildlife Service and is a Certified Interpretive Guide and Mission Trails Regional Park Trail Guide as well as public educator for the San Diego Natural History Museum and the San Diego Humane Society Project Wildlife.
