Wild Falcons Nesting on Pittsburgh Building

United Press International

A pair of endangered wild peregrine falcons living in downtown Pittsburgh have chosen a man-made nesting box to hatch and raise four chicks, the first such occurrence ever reported in Pennsylvania.

Officials at the Western Pennsylvania Conservancy said that the nest is in a box high on Gulf Tower. The falcons have been living in the city since April, 1990.
