Spirit Update + Red, White & Boom Info

Spirit is still on the LeVeque Tower as of this morning. Yesterday witnesses reported that Trooper did bring food to her. Thanks to Irina we have this photo of Spirit on the top of the Tower. Trooper was also observed perched atop the antenna above her.Columbus' big fireworks event, Red, White & Boom is tonight. Every year I get asked what the falcons do during the show--will it scare them, etc. By the time the fireworks are going off the falcons will be at their chosen roost for the night and the fireworks show will be much the same to them as would be a big thunderstorm-just a lot of lightning and thunder. All of the people downtown for the event won't bother the birds - they see people and cars in the streets everyday.
