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:

    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.

    Something I’ve been wondering, how far would you have to go to find the nearest good natural Peregrine nesting location?

    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.
