That is awesome Sage! Seeing the Pefa abbreviation took me back to my rehabbing days! We had a nesting pair in Cedar Rapids, IA. We would just monitor food sources. It was always a cool experience. We also hacked Osprey as part of an introduction program at Lake MacBride. It worked! We got successfull nests after the 5th year (they spend their "teen" age years in South America). Thanks for sharing!!!

Here's another shot from yesterday, which is severely cropped, resulting in a very rough texture which seems to work for me!

If milkweed's falcon cams were provided by AT&T is there a phone company by you that might flip for a few nest cams? Buffalo is pretty big. You're gonna be running all over town to cover that many nest boxes.

The CT Restoration Foundation people are trying to get internet service to the tower now. Then cams. CT was once an art deco architectural gem, which has fallen into end-stage disrepair. The hope is to make use of the main buildings with office space and condos, and if high-speed rail comes back to Buffalo, that will be helpful. For now, we've got everyone recognizing they have endangered Peregrines calling CT home. Word will spread which will be good for both!
