A pair of peregrine falcons has taken up residence on a building in downtown San Francisco after what is believed to be an abscence from the city of more than 70 years. Although families of the once endangered species have been found in suburban areas around San Francisco, the city is thought to be an even better environment for supporting the species. Tall skyscapers emulate sheer cliffs which the falcons prefer for nesting and hunting, and plentiful populations of pigeons and starlings provide lots of prey.
