Aplomado Falcon

I was unaware of a reintroduction project to return this falcon to its historic range.  The following clip on my Facebook page informed me.

Aplomado Falcons

I'm quite aware of the Whooping Crane reintroduction project which has been ongoing for years.  Here is a link for that for anyone that is interested to know:  Operation Migration     At least Aplomado Falcons don't have to be shown a migration route.  I'm guessing they will be set up in a hack box , and then just be allowed to self release.  Many falconry techniques have been used to restore native raptor populations.

Here is an article about the birds and the project:
