Urban Peregrine Falcons

The Raptor Center always appreciates the comments, stories and photos that our friends and fans send to us. 

Mike Williams' passion and dedication to peregrines finds him monitoring a local Minneapolis site each spring.  He continues to follow the youngsters after they fledge.  He graciously shared with us a couple of YouTube videos (video 1 and video 2) he has edited of footage he has taken of the birds at about 10 weeks of age.

You will notice how the birds' plumage is quite different than an adult (you can read about Juneau, our education peregrine, here).
