Where do peregrine falcons live?

Answer

Peregrine falcons are found on every continent in the world, with the exception of Antarctica. The birds also inhabit ocean islands across the globe. They nest in a variety of settings.

For example, in North America, peregrine falcons live on cliffs. Some even choose urban areas and build their nests on skyscrapers. They live in mountainous regions at elevations up to 12,000 feet. Peregrine falcons also live along rivers, ocean coasts, lake edges and mudflats. The common factor found in all nesting sites is open space. "Peregrine" means "wanderer," and these birds live up to their name during migration periods. Some birds travel as far as 15,500 miles.
