The falcons are back!
Every year a pair of Peregrine falcons make a nest and lay some eggs at the top of the Market Tower building in downtown Indianapolis. The Indy Star has a pair of webcams in the nest box so you can watch the lil’ birdies in 30-second updates. You can also take bets on when the first eggs will be laid and when the fuzzy lil’ birdie babies will be born (probably in a week or two if you look at previous years). All the updates are reported on the falcon blog.
I’ve had the webcam up on my computer at work, watching as the falcons come and go, making circles digging out their nest, and generally wishing I was a bird who could just fly around as I please instead of a woman sitting behind a computer all day with a constant headache. Do birds even get headaches?
In the spirit of full disclosure, my full-time job is in some way connected to the falcon blog. However, I mention it because I love to watch the little birdies and not just because I’m trying to rack up our pageviews. (Although that would be nice too! PQ would like to keep her day job!)
