Feather identification


In a recent “River Talk” column (www.riverreporteronline.com/column/river-talk/16/2012/02/17/peek-peregri...) we alerted readers to a pair of peregrine falcons that has nested on the Rachel Carson State Office Building in Harrisburg. The bird’s activities are monitored by a webcam hosted by the Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection. On March 8, the female laid her first egg (three days earlier than last year). On March 12, she laid a second egg. Visit www.dep.state.pa.us/dep/falcon/recent_news.html to keep up with the birds’ progress.
