Peregrine Falcons: Their Biology and a 50-year History of Nest Site Monitoring and Management at Morro Rock

Biologist Steve Schubert chronicles the efforts of nest site attendants and endangered species management techniques–captive breeding, double clutching, captive hatching of thin, fragile wild eggs, and the fostering of falcon chicks into the wild nests–that have assisted in the recovery of a once-imperiled species.

Schubert graduated from Cal Poly and received his Master’s degree in Field Biology. Author of the book The Peregrine Falcons of Morro Rock–A 50-year History, he is past president of Morro Coast Audubon Society and Volunteer Coordinator of the Hi Mountain Lookout Project.
