Description

Your creativity will soar through coloring and other activities as you discover how the peregrine falcon is a force of nature — and healing — at Mayo Clinic.

Since 1987, a nest box atop the tall buildings at Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota, has been home to generations of peregrine falcons. Established to help save the endangered species, the Mayo Clinic Peregrine Falcon Program allows patients, staff and falcon fans around the world to watch — in person or online — as the falcons raise their young. Through these majestic creatures, we see that nature can be a vital part of the healing process and a reminder of the wonder of daily life.

Wildlife lovers of all ages can meet the falcons and learn about the earth’s fastest animal through fun activities and surprising facts. Inspiring stories, original illustrations, color photographs and a stunning four-color centerfold depicting a chick’s development also bring the peregrines of Mayo Clinic to life. Printed on high quality paper ready to enhance with crayons, pencils, markers, or watercolors, each coloring page is perforated for easy removal and display.

Taking Flight: The Peregrine Falcons of Mayo Clinic is more than a coloring book — it’s a tribute to the resilience of the birds who inspired it.
