Evaluating nest-site selection of Arctic peregrine falcons in the Colville River Special Area


August 2016 - July 2019


One fourth of Alaska's Arctic peregrine falcons, a formerly federally threatened species, nest along the Colville River on Alaska's North Slope. We are using historical survey data and models we developed related to productivity to assess where this population would be most and least susceptible to perturbation, to inform management decisions.
