Aplomado Falcon range

Distribution: The Aplomado Falcon was once a bird of prey seen in southern regions of Texas. Unfortunately, it disappeared a number of years ago. Through the reintroduction of these falcons from Central America and Mexico, these birds are now a part of the southeastern Texas landscape again. They are even showing some signs that it is expanding its range. This has been a positive experience where intervention and providing protection for an endangered species has had great results.
