Took the crew out to an undisclosed location to work with Peregrine Falcons, a top predator that declined as a result of DDT exposure. Populations have been increasing since the ban on DDT use in North America (Virginia population and obs from Hawk Mtn, PA). 

There were 4 chicks - all healthy and the crew had a great time helping to process them before they were returned to the nest. The adults were upset and kept an eye on the whole thing.
