From the streets of Providence, birds perched high on downtown architecture may look like ordinary pigeons, but a keen eye and powerful lens bring the rare Peregrine Falcons into view. For years, the fastest animals on the planet have patrolled the downtown skyline, protecting their territory and successfully rearing over 50 chicks.

Peter Green is a photographer and graphic designer living and working in downtown Providence. He walks the city, documenting the Peregrine Falcons and more urban wildlife from Red-Tailed Hawks nesting on rooftops to Kestrels hunting in alleys. These regal, powerful raptors seem out-of-place yet perfectly at home among the landscape of bricks and concrete.
