A peek at a peregrine pair

Ace, a peregrine falcon who sustained injuries preventing his return to the wild, received years of care at the Delaware Valley Raptor Center (DVRC) in Milford, PA until his death. Today, DVRC cares for two other peregrines, a male and a female, along with many raptors, including eagles and a snowy owl. Peregrines may survive to reach 12 to 15 years, although first-year mortality is very high.
