Falcon Watch - 3 Chicks Fly!

The girls have now joined their brother in fledging. Volunteer nest monitor Mr. Scott Wright tells us the young falcons have been “flapping machines” as they have been working to strengthen their muscles. On Monday Mr. Wright had to rescue Soarer from the 4th floor roof of the Terminal Tower, which…See More

Falcon Watch - The Chicks are Banded

SW and Boomer’s eyasses were banded today by the Ohio Division of Wildlife. Because peregrine falcons were on the List of Endangered Species for 30 years and because they are still rare, the birds are banded so that they may be tracked and studied in the future. Our thanks to the Ohio Division of…See More

Falcon Watch - Chicks are growing

How many eyasses are in this bunch of fluff?  3 eggs have hatched.  It looks like the fourth will not, but this is not unusual.  Peregrine eyasses grow at an incredible rate.  By the time they are six weeks old they will be as big as their parents.   Each week you will notice changes in their appearance and…See More

In 2000, I created the Raptors in the City program, which is a national environmental education and technology program that follows the nesting cycle of the peregrine falcon each year from February-June. We watch the falcons nesting on a skyscraper in real-time online via a "FalconCam" sponsored by the Cleveland Museum of Natural History.

Hi Deborah. Peregrine Falcons are my very favorite. I live 9 hours north of Boise, Idaho and have been to the raptor rehabilitation center there where they raise and rehabilitate Peregrines and other raptors. I finally got to see a Peregrine up close. They are so beautiful and mysterious. The Boise center also operates The Peregrine Fund. I bought one of their hats and wear it all the time. I hope you can visit there some day. Thanks for joining the Network and post your ideas, thoughts and suggestions often. John

Hi Deborah! Welcome to the forum. I love your pictures and the work you do. I hope you'll continue to make yourself at home here and post pictures and join discussions. You might want to join our Natural Teachers Network or Natural Families Network to find people interested in educating with and about raptors. I hope to see you here again soon. It must be migration season, right?
