FYI for Heidelberg Falcon Fans...
Peregrine Falcons in Heidelberg-Germany/Columbus-Ohio connection :loveshow:

This page was found in German.

Several years ago, because of the influence of an Ohio friend, Hans-Martin Gang, a peregrine falcon enthusiast in Germany watched the Columbus Falconcam with great interest. Having worked many years with cliff-nesting peregrines, Hans-Martin wanted to focus on city-dwelling falcons and install a peregrine nesting box on top of the historic Holy Spirit Church in Heidelberg. Through his Ohio friend he made contact with me (Donna D), asking for details on the design of our Columbus peregrine nesting box. I was pleased to provide technical advice to assist with his endeavor.

The connection to Columbus continues. After Hans-Martin installed his falcon nest box, it wasn't long until peregrines moved in. The adult female in Heidelberg was named "Aurora" after Columbus' 1st nesting female! Now, several years later, the Holy Spirit Church has successfully raised several broods of peregrines and this year they again have a webcam. Check out their website, including the "Questions & Answers" section where they explain the reason of naming their adult female "Aurora."

http://www.ag-wanderfalken.de/index.php ... &Itemid=74

Hans-Martin and I (Donna D) have developed a friendship and continue to "compare notes" each year on the success of our nesting falcons!


Info below posted on March 13, 2013 by Hans-Martin.
You want to know where JETTA, PERKEO and the young falcons perch, sleep, feed and watch the air-traffic of pigeons etc. ? Today I found a photo in our local newspaper "Rhein-Neckar-Zeitung" -done by the late photographer Stefan Kresin - from the top of the "Thick Tower" of Heidelberg Castle-ruin (mind that the wall of the tower is 6 mtrs. thick!): You see, the falcons can look down to the entrance of the nestbox in Holy-Spirit-Church-steeple and guard their territory in the Neckar-valley over the historic part of Heidelberg. Small photo: Thick Tower is broken Tower at right side of ruin...

Yesterday happened what we fear since several years at our nest box! A Nile goose (Alopochen aegyptiacus) arrived from near-by river Neckar and checked inside and outside this place to breed!
We have had this in Ettlingen - 150 km from here (Protestant City Church) some years ago when after some visits of a Nile goose the resident Peregrine falcon pair left and was never seen again.

In 2008 we had built a small nest box for Turmfalke/kestrel (Falco tinnunculus) in a church next to my home and we were happy when finally in 2013 a pair of kestrels discovered this nest box, courted and visited daily this nest box. We could not believe our eyes when suddenly a big Nile goose entered th small nest box. The kestrel are gone since then. Nile goose have settled all over Europe and are aggressive against other water fowl but even to people walking with their dogs along Neckar river.

I wish there was a more "aggressive" policy towards these introduced (by accident or on purpose) species. These ducks are becoming a real big problem all over Europe.

I agree! But how could it be done? I think here in Heidelberg live along the Neckar river more than 100 Nile geese. It is not allowed for rangers/hunters to shoot them within local city borders. Many people walking along the river like to feed them. Law does not allow to to disturb, molest or catch them . :sosad2
