2009 was good for peregrines
Peregrine falcons had a successful year last year across New York, according to the state Department of Environmental Conservation.
DEC surveys found that there were 73 territorial pairs of state endangered peregrine falcons present in the state in 2009, with 42 pairs recorded upstate. That’s a slight increase from 2008, when 67 pairs were recorded statewide.
Also in 2009, 61 pairs bred and produced 132 young, also slightly up from 2008.
