    It looks windy, probably chilly. Where is this?

    Ha ha, the bald eagle parents were just having a bit of a "dispute". It looks like the mom is feeding the chicks and daddy is in the way.

    Both parents were there this afternoon - along with a fish they were feeding the "kids".

    The "kids" are almost ready to fly the coop! They're flapping their wings quite a bit and hopping to various branches. No one has left the nest tree yet, though. :cool:

    Here is a Peregrine Falcon cam in Winnipeg Manitoba, (that's Canada :D ). The roost is on a downtown hotel and is part of a re-introduction program started a number of years ago. This one was specially constructed to shelter from winds and our frequent spring/early summer driving rain storms. This female peregrine has a new mate this year and I believe this is the first time they have actually used this roost. In prior years they stubbornly insisted on an unprotected ledge. A couple of years ago tragically the chicks died after a bad rain storm despite all efforts to save them.
