Several summers now I have enjoyed watching the baby falcons via the Kodak Falconcam. This site has a lot of information about the 10 years that this falcon nest box has been in observation on a tower in Rochester, New York
and also, of course, constantly changing pictures of those adorable flesh-eating baby falcons. Here is a picture of falcon mom and her four daughters taken May 31.
Check out the current view from the Falconcam and see how much they have changed since then.
Believe it or not, I have been doing some gardening lately and I have noticed that along with our usual cardinals, robins, sparrows and blue jays, this year we have catbirds, cowbirds and mockingbirds passing though our trees.
Our neighbors have a family of bobcats in the back of their yard.... As far as I am concerned, the bobcats can help themselves to all of the mice, rabbits, skunks and squirrels they want, but leave the birds alone! (And yes, I am conflicted when I see the falcons eating other birds.)
