Peregrine falcons have their share of claims to fame. With a diving speed of over two hundred miles per hour, these birds of prey are the fastest animals on earth or in the sky, and they are now well known for adapting from life on rocky cliffs to a different kind of mountain: modern skyscrapers. But adaptability only helps so much. In 1951, there were no peregrines left in Illinois, for instance, and it looked as if the species would be wiped out entirely in North America. Today, however, peregrines are flourishing. In The Peregrine Returns, Mary Hennen gives wings to this extraordinary conservation success story. Drawing on the beautiful watercolors of Field Museum artist-in-residence Peggy Macnamara and photos by Field Museum research assistant Stephanie Ware, as well as her own decades of work with peregrines, Hennen uses a program in Chicago as a case study for the peregrines’ journey from their devastating decline to the discovery of its cause (a thinning of eggshells caused by a by-product of DDT), through to recovery, revealing how the urban landscape has played an essential role in enabling falcons to return to the wild—and how people are now learning to live in close proximity to these captivating raptors. Both a model for conservation programs across the country and an eye-opening look at the many creatures with which we share our homes, this richly illustrated story is an inspiring example of how urban architecture can serve not only our cities’ human inhabitants, but also their wild ones.

Progress in the field of bird conservation has advanced at an increasingly rapid rate. With the publication of this volume, the first in a projected series of Bird Conservation annuals, the U.S. Section of the International Council for Bird Preservation provides a review of research, and detailed discussions of key ecological topics, that help to synthesize and communicate the current wealth of information related to bird conservation in the United States. Concerned conservationists and both professional and amateur ornithologists will welcome this comprehensive guide to a burgeoning field. This premier edition reflects the composition and goals of the ICBP's annual publication. Each yearbook will first present a series of reports on a specific conservation issue or program submitted by biologists active in the field. Complementing this detailed forum on a crucial ornithological theme are two features conceived as regular components of the yearbook, and considered vital to its aims. A section dedicated to bird conservation news and updates presents current, concise reports by involved experts on various bird populations, conservation activities, and international treaties. This section is supplemented by a review of bird conservation literature that cites, and often annotates, recent published accounts of population trends, biology, and ecological standing of endangered birds. It is most appropriate that the U.S. Section of the ICBP should sponsor this venture. As the world's oldest international conservation organization, one that has played a prominent role in bird conservation and enjoyed an impressive record of success, it is well equipped to manage the ambitious project.

Reaching speeds in excess of 200 miles per hour, the Peregrine Falcon is famous as the world's fastest bird. However, its penchant for choosing inaccessible places to breed, feed and roost mean that few people are well acquainted with its habits and behaviour. This ebook offers a window into that rarely seen world, thanks to a combination of high quality images and beautifully written text, with chapters on subjects such as hunting, raising young and how populations around the world have rallied against the threat of extinction and are now prospering once again. The birds are further brought to life through a series of personal anecdotes from the author and photographers, which are woven into the text. The ebook is part of a series that also includes the titles Barn Owl and Kingfisher.
