Artist's Description

Captured a Peregrine Falcon at Lovers Key State park on Estero Island ,Florida , which is only here in the winter during their non-breeding time. MY first time seeing one in the wild here. and I was out with 3 other Rb’ers and what a beautiful day it was.The Peregrine Falcon became an endangered species in many areas due to the use of pesticides, especially DDT. Since the ban on DDT from the beginning of the 1970s onwards, the populations recovered, supported by large scale protection of nesting places and releases to the wild.
