Peregrine Falcons

Did you know we have a bird right here in Indianapolis that can reach speeds faster than an Indy Car? And, you can see them easily on a camera set up by the nice folks at the Indy Star?

Yes indeed, folks, we have Peregrine Falcons that regularly nest in Indianapolis and (drumroll, please) they have already laid an egg for this season! You can watch the goings on in their nest box, watch an egg being laid, watch one hatch and see the parents feed their young. Be be warned, it can be addicting!

The camera can be accessed by going to this link http://blogs.indystar.com/falconblog/
and my friend Laura writes an awesome blog with the goings on for the day, answering questions and giving great insight. She has a great sense of humor and one can tell she really is a falconhead!

In a later post I will cover all their unique features. But for now, enjoy the live cam and hopefully you will get to see some amazing behaviors!StumbleUpon
