Oregon Peregrine Falcons
A pair of Peregrine Falcons began nesting at Yaquina Head
in 2012. This is the most accessible site in a naturalistic setting
for observation and photography in the western United
States. Wayne and other local photographers and birders
have been documenting these birds ever since. Wayne will
describe the Peregrine nesting cycle, from courtship to
fledgling independence, including incubation, chick feeding
behavior, prey selection, and nest defense. He will also illustrate
social dynamics, including infidelity, mate replacement,
and responses to visitors.
Wayne Hoffman is a native Oregonian who graduated from
Newport High School in 1969, then obtained Bachelorís and
Masterís degrees in Zoology from Oregon State University,
and a Ph. D in Biology from the University of South Florida.
After a post-doc with the Kansas Biological Survey, he
worked for 11 years for the National Audubon Society, conducting
research on bird populations and habitat needs. He
then returned to Newport, and has worked for the MidCoast
Watersheds Council since 1999, currently as Policy Director.
