Peregrine falcons nesting at Acadia National Park: Jordan Cliffs are closed
Contact: Bruce Connery, 207-288-8726
Adult peregrine falcons were recently observed defending Jordan Cliffs and are thought to be using the cliffs as their nesting territory. Their aggressive behavior toward visitors and staff on the trail or on the cliffs was justification for Acadia National Park Superintendent Sheridan Steele to announce the closing of the cliffs and trail on Sunday, May 25. The Jordan Cliffs have not been used by a nesting pair of falcons since 2009.
