Falcon sighting

This peregrine falcon was spotted this past July 20 perched at AbitibiBowater kraft mill by local resident, Kevin Marusyk, who was able to capture the rare bird of prey with his camera. The birds are considered a species at risk provincially and federally, decades after the species’ population collapse back in the 1960s due pesticides such as DDT interfering with their reproductive process.
