A pair of peregrine falcons has made a home on top of a courthouse in Taunton, cheering a wildlife expert who says it’s another sign the birds are making a comeback. The nest on the Taunton Superior Courthouse is the 30th spot in Massachusetts for the falcon since the species disappeared from the state in the mid-1950s. The Brockton Enterprise reports that Tom French, assistant director of MassWildlife, says peregrine falcons usually stay at a site permanently, replacing those that die. The peregrine falcon is known for typically reaching speeds of 200 miles per hour in high-speed dives while hunting for pigeons and other birds. (AP)
