Dean Keddy-Hector, has worked as a scientist for Texas Parks and Wildlife, and taught biology at the college level. He has also studied the aplomado falcon for many years. Here he discusses the artificial nesting platforms that the Peregrine Fund developed to protect reintroduced aplomado falcon nestlings from predation. The success of these platforms suggested that the lack of good nesting sites may be one factor limiting aplomados from moving further north.
