Transcript of Peregrine Falcon
.These birds are native to Australia, and the habitat I chose is the coast of Victoria. This place has many beaches and jagged cliff faces, which the falcons like to nest in, as well as trees. Some other animals found in Victoria are echidnas, tasmanian devils, wallabies, and penguins.
The Peregrine Falcon gets it food from hunting other animals like small birds. Their talons are strong, and they can catch a bird the size of duck even while its in the air. They prefer a type of bird called the Galah, but they have been known to go after pigeons, starlings, and sparrows.
The Peregrine Falcon is the fastest animal ever recorded, and is the swiftest of all the birds of prey. Its strong talons and fast flying aid in its survival by helping it catch its prey.
The Peregrine Falcon isn't endangered, in fact its Conservation Status is Least Concern. However, it was on the Endangered species list in 1999, but has since been removed. In the 60's, this bird was affected by a pesticide called DDT. The falcon was completely gone from the Eastern US. The pesticide affected eggs and prevented chicks from hatching.
By Adeline Bryant
Since DDT was outlawed the falcon population has increased rapidly, and they face little threats, except Eagles and Owls who occasionally prey on falcon chicks.
You can help by Adopting a falcon and sponsoring
it. Raising funds for protection groups is a huge help for protecting these birds.
I would ask local authorities to help raise awareness and speak up for them, and sponsor some protection groups.
