Colorado Parks & Wildlife - Species Data - Peregrine Falcon Potential Nesting
Colorado Parks and Wildlife Biologists, District Wildlife Managers, and Researchers
PeregrinePotentialNesting is an ESRI SDE Feature Class showing Potential Nesting for Peregrine Falcons in Colorado. Potential Nesting is defined as an area which appears to include the necessary components for peregrine falcon nesting, but in which no known active or inactive nest sites are present. This information was derived from field personnel. A variety of data capture techniques were used including drawing on mylar overlays at 1:50,000 scale USGS county mapsheets and implementation of the SmartBoard Interactive Whiteboard using stand-up, real-time digitizing at various scales (Cowardin, M., M. Flenner. March 2003. Maximizing Mapping Resources. GeoWorld 16(3):32-35).
