Falcons in the City : The Story of a Peregrine Family, Hardback Book

Falcons in the City : The Story of a Peregrine Family Hardback

Description

A charming story about a nest of wild birds that alarm, then charm, their city landlords.

What happens when a peregrine falcon chooses to lay its eggs on a balcony high atop a tower block?

Here is the story of a family of wild birds that moves into a cramped urban home and decides to settle in among towers filled with people and noise.

The birds' new human neighbours are quick to try and evict, but it turns out that the falcons have rights too and the law is on their side.

This amusing true-life story looks at the issues related to urban wildlife and how urban dwellers co-exist with an ever-increasing wildlife population that finds ingenious - and sometimes devious - ways to move into our homes and cities, often without notice.

Illustrated with photographs documenting the early life of a peregrine falcon family that grows from eggs to full-fledged birds in the flowerbox of a curious apartment-dweller, this book also explores the natural history of this majestic bird species.
