Cool catch on the guy taking care of the nestbox. Funny you should say that about the size of the nestbox catwoman. I remember the first time I saw somebody standing close to the box was in SJ and I was shocked at how small I thought it was. I guess at that time I really didn't even know how big a falcon was either.

I was thinking the same thing. I remember watching bevs nest and seeing someone walk around it & thought it was so little.

My first shocker on nest size was the one in San Francisco when they banded chicks! :wavingsnowgirl:

I attended a Gulf Towers banding a few years ago, and was also surprised at the size. I saw the nestbox - complete with unbanded chicks and Dori - by looking through the window to the right. (No worries, the window is covered with blinds, and they were not disturbed at all until the PA Game Commission opened a window to retrieve them!) The camera displays a distorted perspective.
