Wow, y'all! I love this thread, except for the sad parts, of course. Peregrine, I always wondered about your name, but hadn't asked for whatever reason. I can't imagine how hard it must have been to do that retrieval.

I've been watching raptor web cams for a few years and know what it is to love those creatures. Big Red (red tail hawk) over at Cornell is probably my favourite, though Iris (osprey) out at Hellgate is a close second.

Sorry, I'm thread-drifting here. But I'm so glad this thread was put in Computers; wouldn't have seen it else-wise. Thanks for the new link!

People think birds migrate because it gets cold, as I'm sure you know that is not why. They migrate for one reason: they follow the food. Well when your food source is pigeons and sea gulls that also don't migrate, there's no need to leave.
I watched her for 8 years. I watched her battle above and on the streets of downtown Cleveland. I watched her get killed. I retrieved her body. It was really sad for me. I loved that bird.

Very sad. Proves it doesn't pay to leave home. Not even for birds.

The nest (Ameren St Louis ) had a note that streaming is not available. Banding day, of course. We'll see what tomorrow brings.

A sad story this morning. We knew we'd had that wind but we kept thinking of camera damage. Instead we learn what really happened. Check the Ask Jeff page. I'll say no more except keep up a bit of hope.

Good News! The baby that survived is back in the nest and mama has fed it. Be sure to read Ask Jeff. It's a girl!
