Falcons on the Comeback Trail!

Some great news about Peregrine Falcons in a story by Scott Fallon on northjersey.com Fallon reports that “State researchers and wildlife advocates documented a record 40 nesting pairs in 2018, after the species had been wiped out in New Jersey beginning in the 1960s, officials reported this month. Twenty-eight pairs produced at least 75 chicks last year.”

There’s also a Meadowlands angle. According to the story: One of the most successful breeding nests in 2018 is the one found on the┬áRoute 3 bridge over the Hackensack River, where four peregrine falcons were born in 2018.
