Peregrine falcons - from rock breeders to building breeders

The Peregrine Falcon, an impressive species of bird that can be found almost worldwide. This falcon breeds almost all over Europe. The Peregrine Falcon ( Falco peregrinus) is a fast-paced aviator. The Central European population of peregrine falcons had almost completely disappeared a few years ago due to environmental chemicals of all kinds, recreational sports on rock faces. Through intensive nature conservation management and agreements with recreational athletes, as well as the ban on the insecticide DDT, this species was able to recover somewhat in its inventory. Peregrine falcons are still considered endangered and are strictly protected. What is special and fascinating is how this species nests in Europe: Peregrine falcons have made their way into the cities, especially in recent decades, and no longer breed on rocks, but have discovered the city and tall buildings as artificial rocks.

A peregrine falcon can breed by offering a peregrine falcon box on exposed, tall buildings.

Peregrine falcon box as a pigeon defense

The peregrine falcon is a welcome guest in cities. Peregrine falcons feed exclusively on birds that are caught in flight. City pigeons are also in the range of prey. Peregrine falcons are a natural, pigeon defense. Building renovations and new buildings with smooth facades and glass facades make it increasingly difficult for this falcon species to find a suitable nesting site. Attaching artificial nesting aids in the form of a peregrine falcon box can make a valuable contribution to protecting this species of bird.
