The goal of our project is the collection, relocation and reintroduction of young peregrines in western South Dakota. Our 2012 reintroduction project kicks off with the first arrival of 4 birds on June 9, 2012. A total of 20 young birds will be released in downtown Rapid City from the Top of the Black Hills Power corporate offices.
This broadcast is intended to introduce people to the peregrine falcon, known to be the fastest animal on the planet. You will observe them eating, learning how to use their wings, how they "socialize" with each other, and watch as we record their development into juvenille free flyers.
Please bookmark our channel and check in daily. You can also visit our blog at http://rapidcityfalcons.blogspot.com/ to keep abreast of news and updates. We are glad you are taking an interest in the ongoing efforts to reintroduce the peregrine falcon to the Black Hills of SD, and to help return the natural balance of animal life to our beautiful area.
