In 1965, the landmark Madison Peregrine Conference focused world attention on the precipitous population decline of the Peregrine Falcon over much of its range owing to the effects of organochlorine pesticides. As the most cosmopolitan naturally-distributed bird in the world, and as a top predator in the global ecosystem, the Peregrine was and is a unique biological monitor of the quality of the world's environments. Long known as the bird of kings, the Peregrine's preeminent position in falconry and its embodiment of nobility in the wild helped rally to the cause of biological conservation an extraordinary array of individuals and organizations. Its recovery both by natural and artificial processes is now well under way on at least two continents, and the Peregrine has become the premier example of success in single species conservation.In November 1985, more than 500 raptor biologists and Peregrine specialists met in Sacramento, California for a three-day conference on Peregrine biology and conservation. Their purpose was to assess the worldwide status of the Peregrine Falcon 20 years after the historic Madison Conference, and to celebrate the survival and growing recovery of this "fiercest and fastest" of all birds.The Peregrine Fund, Inc. is pleased to present, in this book, the proceedings of the Sacramento Conference and the results of additional related research. These papers demonstrate what can be done through cooperation, good will, and much hard work, to reverse a species' seemingly hopeless slide toward extinction. Hopefully, this book will contribute toward an enduring understanding of the Peregrine Falcon, and will serve, also, as an instructive case history for the preservation of other endangered species.

The first edition of The Peregrine Falcon was widely recognised as a classic of its kind, documenting not only the species' biology but also the sad tale of its decline due to the impact of pesticides. This extensively revised and enlarged second edition takes full account of important new developments in the story of this bird during the intervening 12 years. It reports one of the few notable successes in wildlife conservation: the full restoration of British and Irish Peregrine populations, and their appreciable recovery in other countries where numbers had also been greatly reduced by the impact of organochlorine pesticides. The pattern of increase in Britain has been extremely varied, from districts where numbers are now far higher than at any time in recorded history, to others where the bird is now at its lowest ebb. The examination of the reasons for these differences helps us to understand the most recent developments in the Peregrine saga. Particular attention has been paid to the recent major advances in our knowledge of Peregrine biology, such as its movements, population turnover, food and nesting habits. Many of the tables and figures have been revised and brought up to date so that this volume, like its predecessor, is once again by far the most detailed and readable reference on this most evocative of birds. Donald Watson's colour paintings, monochrome washes and line drawings, and the original photographs, illustrate the book as before. Cover illustration by Donald Watson
