A peek at a peregrine pair

TRR photo by Sandy Long Ace, a peregrine falcon who sustained injuries preventing his return to the wild, received years of care at the Delaware Valley Raptor Center (DVRC) in Milford, PA until his death. Today, DVRC cares for two other peregrines, a male and a female, along with many raptors, including eagles and a snowy owl. Adult peregrines can reach a speed of over 200 miles per hour in a vertical dive called a stoop. Learn more at www.dvrconline.org.
