Wizbang goes to the birds

I’m no bird-watcher, but twice recently I’ve discussed birds in postings here. And here comes a third.

Peregrine falcons are normally cliff-dwelling birds, but like rock doves (now commonly known as pigeons), they’ve adapted to city life quite well. They nest on smokestacks, bridges, and tall buildings.

Including a “skycraper” (by Cow Hampshire standards — others would call it a high-rise) in downtown Manchester, New Hampshire.

The New Hampshire Audubon Society has set up a couple cameras on the nest, and put them on a live internet feed here. It is just too cool.

I spotted at least one egg a few minutes ago…
