U.S. Department of the Interior: Travel Tips, Holiday Ideas and Vacation Inspiration – July 17, 2017 at 05:24AM

Need something to get you through Monday? Here’s a pic of an adorable clutch of baby peregrine falcons on banding day at Cabrillo National Monument (@cabrillonps) in #California. At birth, peregrine chicks weigh about 1.5 ounces, but they grow quickly — they can double their weight in just six days. They reach nearly full size after only seven weeks. Cool fact about #peregrine falcons: They are among the fastest birds, flying at up to 55 mph and diving at more than 200 mph when striking avian prey in mid-air.
