With wind out of the west at just under 10 MPH, 80 degrees, and clear blue skies, had a nice opportunity to observe the adult male Peregrine Falcon atop the Ayer Mill Clock Tower.  The male was seen in the late day sun perched on the back strut of the weathervane….a favorite perch over the […]

Checked all around the Clock Tower this morning only to find both Lawrence Peregrines on the east side in the shade.  What a morning with bright cobalt blue skies, very light winds and the temperature pushing through 70 degrees.  The adult pair have been seen together quite a bit over the past week.  Lots of […]

    Hi, Craig! This site is spectacular! I am working with the 21 st Century program at the Wetherbee School doing a river study of the Merrimack. We took our students on their first barge ride yesterday up river and saw a red tail chasing a great blue heron, many hawks, geese, mallards, and other birds. A rainbow on the way back. I had no idea there were kestrels in the area, nor did I know of the peregrines. My brother ( Craig, also!) has a live video feed of a nest at the top of the Marriott in Boston. I’m wondering if you had time to come share your knowledge with our 3 rd and
    4 th graders at the Wetherbee some day after school? If not, I’ll have them blog you on this site. Btw. I live in a lake in Tyngsboro and witnesses a pair if swans harassing some Canada geese this morning. Can they move! I could go on and on about our wildlife, but that’s for another day. Can’t wait to visit the rookery in NA. Thanks again for your site. Kate Oliver
