Kansas City Real Estate Is Becoming Popular Among Peregrine Falcons
Thanks to conservation efforts 30 years in the making, peregrine falcons are likely to be removed from the state’s endangered species list this summer.
Peregrine falcons are well suited to city living; they often nest at great heights, like skyscrapers and are natural predators of pigeons. There are currently seven successfully breeding pairs nesting in the Kansas City area, according to the Missouri Department of Conservation. While this is enough to sustain the population for now, the department is trying to document others to continue conservation efforts.
