Statewide Updates Coming Soon!

While we still wait for eggs here in Columbus, peregrine falcon nesting season is officially underway in other parts of the state. The first egg of the season was discovered at the Cleves, OH, site on 3/7, and eggs have also been reported at Cleveland's Terminal Tower location. Note on a possible new territory: We've gotten information about a pair at Wittenberg University in Springfield (see photo above by Beau Rogers). District 5 staff will be confirming the sighting. The 2007 statewide falcon nesting updates will start early next week. Look for the "Falcon nests around Ohio" link on the Division of Wildlife's main falcon website.
