Synopsis:
A magnificent bird is in danger of extinction. This documentary follows

a female peregrine falcon from birth in Alaska through a roundabout migration

to Florida, where she is captured by a falconer. The program examines the threat of

insecticides to the peregrine (DDT, for example results in sterility and eggs

that cannot hatch.) Five months were spent in the back country near Mount McKinley

 recording the Peregrine's courting and nesting habits. They filmed most of the bird's

aerobatics in slow-motion (the falcon attains 100mph in level flight and an incredible

 200mph in a dive. Producer Zuniga mounted a camera on a radio-controlled model

 plane to provide the falcon's-eye-view. [RF]
