This is Peregrine Falcon, the world’s fastest bird, capable of flying at speeds over 200 miles an hour (over 320kms/hr). After almost being wiped out nationwide by pesticide DDT, habitat destruction and more, Peregrine falcons are now adapting to the urban settings and share New Jersey’s best wildlife comeback stories in recent decades. Today, there are about 25-40 breeding pairs of Peregrine falcons here in New Jersey, USA. They are now mostly found living on high-rises, which resemble cliffs — their natural habitat.
