Indiana may remove falcon from endangered list

INDIANAPOLIS – Indiana wildlife officials could remove the peregrine falcon from the state's endangered species list this summer after what wildlife officials say has been a successful recovery.

Nearly 300 nesting pairs of falcons are living in the upper Midwest today, just 50 years after use of the pesticide DDT eradicated the species east of the Mississippi River.

Wildlife experts say the birds' comeback is due in part to their adaptability.

Indiana Department of Natural Resources biologist John Castrale tells The Indianapolis Star the birds have traded traditional nesting sites in cliffs and bluffs along riverbanks for skyscrapers in cities like Indianapolis and South Bend.

The Indiana Natural Resources Commission will vote on removing the falcon from the list at its July 16 meeting.
