We have been been watching this falocn for a few years now. It is not far from my house. I was surprised that it was just reported now, as lot of us wait for its return.

This is something I never would have imagined. Great article and yes a couple pictures, it isn't gross or anything, but to think about it to much makes me pretty darn sad.

Might have another Falcon nest to watch if the Falcons take to the new nest box

Aurora, meet Leland Tower's high-flying residents
Karademas Management also plans to bring in a web camera at some point so people from around the world can zoom in on the rooftop falcons, said Nowak, adding that interest in these majestic birds has only been growing.

:girlsad3: Highly pathogenic strain of bird flu "H7N8" found on 60,000 turkey farm in Dubois county located in Southern Indiana that is a part of the Mississippi flyway.

I live in Vanderburgh county and Mesker zoo captured all of their free-roaming peacocks/hens (30) and placed them in enclosed areas about the zoo to protect them from droppings from migratory birds this past fall.

Gyrfalcon - Alaska's Seward Peninsula

A remote motion-triggered camera recorded the hatching and growth of these two Gyrfalcon nestlings. Cameras have been set up in 13 different nests, and have captured more than 750,000 photographs for biologist Bryce Robinson to analyze. Photo: Gerrit Vyn
