Where Peregrines Nest in the Wild

This year, for the first time since 1984, my husband and I aren't at Acadia National Park this month but I think of it every day.  If I was there I'd be stopping by the base of this mountain to scan for peregrines.  It's one of the few wild places where I know they nest.

On Throw Back Thursday here's a description of the peregrines' wild nest sites at Acadia with news from 2010:

  1. Thanks for this timely Throwback Thursday! I’ll be going to Acadia in a few weeks and the Precipice Trail looks amazing. Maybe we’ll even see a falcon.

    1. J, there are some in the Susquehanna River valley in Lycoming County and in the Delaware Water Gap. I’ve never been to them so I don’t know how to get there.
