Sonoran Desert Project

The Montana Peregrine Institute has expanded peregrine studies to the northwest coast of Mexico. Peregrines frequent cliffs in most major bays along the coast. Peregrines are in courtship here in January. Future studies will verify if these peregrines are resident to the area or migrants from other areas. Satellite tracking will establish what percentage of the Sonoran peregrines are from Montana.

Peregrines are nesting on this cliff overlooking the gulf of California.
