Peregrine Falcons

Hello Everyone,

We currently have two Peregrine Falcons in our hack box at Rock City.
 We received them last Friday, May 27th, from Andy Kramer of Hastings, Minnesota. Andy has supplied us with young Peregrines for our release project for several years. The two yet un-named brothers, are now 36 days old. We hope to release them next Wednesday, June 8th. The two will be numbers 11 and 12 falcons that we have released at the "Rock" in hopes to restore Peregrines in the Chattanooga/NW Georgia area. Rock City has a live feed video from the hack box, so one may view them if you wish. The video is delayed by about five seconds, so the images look rather robotic. To see the Live Feed go here:

Speaking of Rock City, we are now in our second week of our 12th season of Rock City Raptors. Showtimes are Friday-Sunday at 11:00, 1:00, 3:00 and 4:30 EST. Come on up to the cool mountaintop and see us at See Rock City. By the way, thanks to Ray Helman for the great photo!
