Dumbarton Bridge Oakland to SF, by Darin Marshall (CC)Amidst major renovation work on the Dumbarton Bridge spanning San Francisco Bay, officials with the California Department of Transportation are taking every precaution not to disturb a pair of nesting peregrine falcons that made their home under the bridge.

Peregrine falcons, known for their speed (up to 200 mph in flight), were removed from the endangered species list in 1999.
