This year, the common theme decided by PostEurop for the Europa competition is “national birds”. In 2017, the Monaco Department of Environment has identified two young peregrine falcons, Falco peregrinus, which were born in a hollow in the cliffs of the Rock. The reproduction of this bird in the Principality of Monaco is indicative of good ecological conditions, which are necessary for this protected, iconic species.
