For the Bird

Ok, I admit it, I’m partial to birds of prey. I’ve always had a fascination with hawks, falcons, osprey and the like. So I just had to take a closer look at this great volunteer story out of Syracuse, NY. Volunteers are working as part of a “fledge watch” group, monitoring a baby peregrine falcon, to make sure it survives and thrives. The article, from Syracuse.com also has a link to a camera that monitors the bird constantly as well as a link to the Facebook page dedicated to the Syracuse peregrine.

The efforts to protect the peregrines are being led by the New  York State Department of Environmental Conservation.

And you can look here to learn more about peregrines in general.
