Item Details

Have you ever imagined what it would be like to be a bird of prey? Frida, the peregrine falcon, narrates the story of how her family came to live in the city of Portland, Oregon, in the early 1990s. Although you might not expect it, cities—densely populated areas of the planet—can be permanent homes to all sorts of wildlife: coyotes, skunks, raccoons, red-tailed hawks, and even peregrine falcons! Falcons in the City, a tale created from true stories of human-falcon interactions in Portland, is accompanied by beautiful watercolor illustrations. Once you learn this story of a falcon living on a bridge in a river city of the Pacific Northwest, you will be sure to bring binoculars on your next visit – and maybe catch a glimpse of Frida’s peregrine family!
