WTIP’s Cathy Quinn spoke recently with Peter Smerud, executive director of Wolf Ridge Environmental Learning Center, in Finland, Minn., about the peregrine falcon. Nearly wiped out by DDT by the 1960s, there are now at least 21 nesting pairs along the North Shore of Lake Superior. Peter shares stories about falcons, including his experiences rock-climbing to reach their nests.
