The Peregrine Falcon Is Back!

After spending four decades on the list of threatened species in Canada, the peregrine falcon may soon fly off it. The Committee on the Status of Endangered Wildlife is recommending the Trudeau government de-list the bird as a threatened species in most of the country. The fast-flying peregrine was added to the list in 1978 when there was only one active nest east of the Rockies and south of the 60th parallel. Since then, its numbers have increased to 600 birds in southern Canada and 15-hundred in the north. (The Canadian Press)
