Approaching this point along the south bank of the river, you will be coming to the end of Harbor Island passing by the power plant. The smoke stack of the power plant is a known as a nesting area for Peregrine Falcons.

The Peregrine Falcon also known simply as the Peregrine, and historically as the "Duck Hawk" in North America, is a cosmopolitan bird of prey in the family Falconidae. It is a large, crow-sized falcon, with a blue-gray back, barred white under parts, and a black head and "moustache".

It can reach speeds over 320 km/h (200 mph) in a stoop. This makes it the fastest creature on the planet! While its diet consists almost exclusively of medium-sized birds, the Peregrine will occasionally hunt small mammals, small reptiles or even insects. Reaching sexual maturity at one year, it mates for life and nests in a scrape, normally on cliff edges or, in recent times, on tall human-made structures.

The Peregrine Falcon became an endangered species in many areas due to the use of pesticides, especially DDT. Since the ban on DDT from the beginning of the 1970s onwards, the populations recovered, supported by large scale protection of nesting places and releases to the wild.
