Rare Falcons Make a Home at Box

Rare falcons make a home at Box

in A&E/Community/Featured/Headline

A pair of Peregrine falcons have nested high up on the front of the Box building in downtown Redwood City.

Popular in the sport of falconry, the Peregrine is a small, fast flier that can reach speeds of over 200 mph while diving for prey. On the rebound from being endangered due to pesticide poisoning, the Peregrine tends to nest in the wild high in cliffs but sometimes find tall buildings in urban settings to their liking do to the abundant presence of pigeons and ducks.
