Where do they go?

Peregrines are known to migrate south to various locations from Texas south to South American. One young peregrine was radio and wintered in central Mexico, however, more formation on the migration of Montana peregrines is needed. We do not know when they begin migration and to where our birds migrate. One of the primary objectives of the Montana Peregrine Institute is to learn about migration of our Montana birds through satellite tracking. We study the peregrine in Montana for only six months (March-August). The remainder of the time, our peregrines are lost in a shroud of mystery.
