The Peregrine Falcons of Morro Rock - A History
The peregrine falcons of Morro Rock, located along the Central Coast of California, have been admired and observed by travelers and visitors from around the world, and is one of the most well-known peregrine falcon nesting sites in North America. Falcon biology and a history at Morro Rock is chronicled with decades of efforts and dedication by nest site attendants and the management techniques - including captive breeding, double clutching, captive hatching of fragile wild eggs, and reintroduction to the wild fostering falcon chicks into wild nests - that assisted in the remarkable recovery of a once highly imperiled, endangered species. Take a virtually guided field trip to Morro Rock to observe favored perching, feeding, and nesting sites. Interact with the many other falcon observers at the 'Rock'!
