Falcon Cam active in Harrisburg again

http://www.dep.state.pa.us/dep/falcon/

Every year I try to remind folks about the camera atop the Rachel Carson building in Harrisburg, PA that is trained on the nest of a peregrine falcon. You can either watch the still images as they are updated every two minutees or you can watch the live camera.

Right now mama is sitting on the nest so there's not a whole lot of action. But, soon the egss will begin to hatch and the fun starts. Last year I watched as one or the other of the adults brought back a pigeon it had caught. It was fascinating watching it feed the four eyasess.

You can find lesson plans for teachers, and even register a class to receive updates and other information about the birds.

Check it out. Register your class so that you know when the eggs begin to hatch. Great fun!
