A Friesland-based weblog called Falco Peregrinus has written about the Peregrine falcons of downtown Fort Wayne and the pigeons who have learned to dare the falcons in their One Summit Square aerie.
The post is illustrated with photos taken this week from the monitor - AEP's FalconCam - which maintains a watch of the falcon nesting site. By the way, the falcon is named "Roosevelt."
From Falco Peregrinus:
A bunch of probably cold and hungry pigeons came to dinner not knowing they just might end up as the very dinner themselves.
But they also know that sitting very still and do not move means the peregrine falcon does not notice them as prey. A nervous frightened flying pigeon is very attractive for a peregrine falcon, but a sitting one is not.
