Program director and teacher
Raptors in the City
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.

Falcon Watch - Farewell

This year two fledglings had to be rescued by volunteer peregrine nest monitor, Mr. Scott Wright. The picture above shows Soarer just after she rode the elevator with Mr. Wright and was placed back in her nest. When the juveniles first fledge, they fly to and from nearby ledges and roofs. This is Savvy…..…

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.

Falcon Watch - Chicks think about flying

If you’ve been watching the FalconCams lately, you know that the nest is empty much of the time. Here is someone out for a walk…..

And where has all the down gone? Going, going………………

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?
