Another successful year for Ohio's peregrine falcons

COLUMBUS Biologists with the Ohio Department of Natural Resources (ODNR) Division of Wildlife estimate 56 young peregrine falcons fledged from 19 successful nests across the state this year. In 2006, a record 60 peregrine falcon chicks fledged from 18 nests. "We had a record-high number of successful nests this year," said Dave Scott, peregrine falcon project coordinator for the ODNR Division of Wildlife. "However, eggs at some nests did not hatch and this reduced our total production compared to last year."
