The Thinker

Never tell me they are dumb.  He certainly seems to be saying, "That's interesting! I've never thought of it that way!"  Just look at the little glint in his eye and you'll agree: he's philosophical.

Peregrine Falcon nest: LIVE!

O.k., I had to include this photo of a beautiful adult peregrine falcon in flight in order to get your attention, but I won't promise that you'll see just such an image in the following link.  What you WILL see is a peregrine falcon nest that is located on top of a hotel in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada. The link will show you a live feed of the nest. You can see the babies huddling against the cold, the parents fighting over the proper way to feed them, and, in short, the quotidian concerns of raising babies that will grow up to be, well, magnificent -- as is clear from the above photo!
