The Chicago Peregrine Program oversees Illinois' Peregrine Falcon population. This is accomplished in part by monitoring nest sites, conducting scientific research and participating in public education. We are very excited to let you know our book on Illinois' Peregrines titled "The Peregrine Returns" is available for purchase through The Field Museum Bookstore.

Feel free to explore below to learn about Peregrine Falcons, their recovery status, and what you can do to help. Don't forget to like us on Facebook!
