North Shore Peregrine Falcon Eyries IBA
Peregrine falcons have specific and limited nest site choices. The sites in this IBA represent 70% of the natural Peregrine falcon nest sites recorded in Minnesota. Although the regional population continues to grow, peregrine biology and cliff site availability dictates that we are nearing the species carrying capacity. Barring disturbance, or other calamity, peregrine falcons can be expected to continue nesting on north shore cliffs for the foreseeable future.
