"Raptors in the City" returns

My e-mail inbox received a Falcon Flash news bulletin earlier this yweek, which means "Raptors in the City" is back in action. A nestbox on the 12th floor of a skyscraper in Cleveland, Ohio, has attracted raptors since 1991.

The current pair of Peregrine Falcons, SW (female) and Buckeye, remained at the nestsite through winter. The FalconCam, sponsored by Cleveland Museum of Natural History, provides up-close and regular updates on the Peregrines' doings.

At the Raptors in the City website, you can sign up for the free Falcon Flash newsletters via e-mail and find a curriculum, available for purchase, for students ages 7 to 11.

It looks like the peregrines are looking in the window, probably at some guy, sitting in a cubicle eating a sandwich...

Amy! I'd like to pick your brain about SoCal birding in mid/late March, especially anything in/around San Diego. Should have the 21st to kill if you're available =)
