Two baby peregrine falcons have been introduced to the Rapid City community as part of an effort to bring the birds back to the area.
Biologist Janie Fink says although peregrine falcons historically nested in western South Dakota, they haven't been seen in the area during the past 50 years.
Now, biologists are introducing the two babies as part of a three-year restoration effort. The young birds will spend time on top of the Black Hills Corporation building rooftop. Biologists will monitor their development through a public webcam.
