"Busa" the Peregrine Falcon

Peregrine Falcon Program Boys Summer Camp

Steve Longenecker has a new Peregrine falcon in his care named Busa. She is a beautiful bird with a lot of personality.

Busa was born in captivity and is very familiar with people. She worked as a trained hunting falcon before going to breeders in South Dakota.

Steve is working with Busa to train her for camp. She will be a wonderful addition to Falling Creek this summer!
