Peregrine Falcons
On several occasions over the past 15 years, peregrine falcons have nested briefly on the cliff face of Mt. Minsi. These raptors are designated as an endangered species in the state of Pennsylvania. When a nesting is confirmed by park ecologists, the cliff face is closed to hiking and climbing. Those interested in spotting the falcons can best do so from Arrow Island Overlook on Route 611, although views of the birds are often brief and at a distance
