it's official: yesterday morning the audobon society declared that the peregrine falcons have returned to a nesting site (somewhere near here).
i was on my way tot he mountain for some morning skiing and on my way i came across a couple of people standing in the road with spotting scopes.
now, i have been birderwatching before, so i recognize the look. and quite frankly if something interesting is going on i will pull over and ask about it.
it's kind of a way of life for me.
so i got to talk with the nice lady from the audobon society and her associate, and i got to look through their very nice spotting scopes.
a peregrine falcon is an impressive bird, and it is super cool to see the male bring lovely gifts of freshly dead stuff to the female.
so the cliff is closed to climbers until the chicks hatch.
