“Powerful and fast-flying, the Peregrine Falcon hunts medium-sized birds, dropping down on them from high above in a spectacular stoop. They were virtually eradicated from eastern North America by pesticide poisoning in the middle 20th century. After significant recovery efforts, Peregrine Falcons have made an incredible rebound and are now regularly seen in many large cities and coastal areas.”

Clue #3

“A bridge over marshy waters, this spot gives you a nice view of Big Creek. Although everyone goes over it, the location is best suited to walkers.”
