The New River Gorge National River is in its fourth year of a five-year peregrine falcon reintroduction program -- one of the largest in the nation.
Since 2006, 62 young peregrines have been released in the Gorge. This year, a total of at least 15 more falcons will be set free here.
Once on the endangered species list, due mainly to the use of the insecticide DDT, which interfered with egg development, the peregrine falcon population has gradually rebounded, thanks mainly to a ban on DDT and reintroduction efforts. Off the endangered list since 1999, peregrines remain relatively rare in the East, particularly in natural settings.
Before being released in the Gorge, the birds receive dual color-coded leg bands to help observers identify them.
