Peregrine Falcon

Because numbers of peregrine falcons within the watershed are the result of limited nesting habitat within the watershed and influences outside the watershed, we measure progress under the HCP by focusing on watershed habitat protection.

Measuring Success for Protecting Watershed Habitats
We document all instances when management activities are delayed to protect peregrine falcon nests from disturbance. We also document the amount of invasive plants controlled or removed, especially in key foraging habitats such as wetlands and meadows.
