A huge “THANK YOU!” to everyone for helping us reach and exceed our funding goal!!!! We can now look forward to ordering the equipment soon to get ready for the 2019 nesting season. We hope to have the system up and running by the New Year so that the adult falcons can get used to the webcam well before they shift into breeding mode.
We have created a new stretch goal of $16,000 to secure additional funds for maintenance and repair of the webcam system AND to hire a student intern for research, video archiving and preparing educational materials. We are particularly excited about giving a student intern such an opportunity. Please join us in helping to reach our Stretch Goal!
Please see our next update, where we report on sightings of Lawrencium, the female peregrine who fledged along with her two brothers from the Campanile in 2018. Thanks to her Visual Identification Band, which is black with a silver unique alpha-numeric code (11/AM), we know what she has been up to!
