Peregrine falcon released off Rapid City rooftop


A Peregrine falcon was released off the rooftop of the Black Hills Corporation building Wednesday evening.

South Dakota Game Fish and Parks are continuing to collect, relocate and release the falcons. Just this summer eleven falcons have been released back into the wild.

Once the birds are released they will continue to live in Rapid City for the summer, then eventually migrate to South America.

Raptor biologist Janie Fink says it is extremely important for citizens to keep an eye out for these newly released birds, and if you find an injured falcon call South Dakota Game Fish and Parks.

The program will continue to release falcons through September.
