Glenn R. Stewart of the Santa Cruz Predatory Bird Research Group will discuss falcons in a changing world, and will be accompanied by, Olga, a live falcon. Falcons that once nested in remote cliffs are now nesting in cities on man-made structures such as buildings and bridges. In 1970 there were only two known nesting pairs of peregrines in California; today the population has recovered to over 250 known nesting pairs, including several in the Bay Area.
