Faster than a speeding train. Able to leap the Green Mountains in a single bound. It’s a bird, not a plane. It’s a Peregrine Falcon! Biologists Kent McFarland and Sara Zahendra of the Vermont Center for Ecostudies recently took a trip to the Bolton Cliffs and joined Margaret Fowle, from Audubon Vermont in search of this lightning fast bird.

“Margaret’s got a good scope set up for us. Let’s get up on the road where we can get a good peak over the trees and up at the cliffside,” says McFarland.
