Dennis Money and Mike Britten
Peregrine Falcons
May 9, 2001

Peregrine falcons Mariah and Cabot-Sirocco have produced and nurtured three clutches consisting of ten offspring in a man-made nest box high atop the Kodak Office Tower. Dennis Money, founder of the Rochester Peregrine Falcon Project was joined by Mike Britten, a National Park Service wildlife biologist, to answer your questions while you viewed exclusive photos.

Thanks to Kodak for putting this back on line and to you for posting the link to it.  This webcast was one of the high points in the history of the Rochester Falcons, and I will never forget being a part of it nine years ago.  It may have also been the beginning of the falconcam community.  Certainly, we all talked about it for months afterward.

Some things really changed.  In the webcast, Dennis Money remarked that, " At Kodak, the falcons are very mild-mannered falcons."  A few years later, hard hats were being knocked off and shirts ripped when chicks were removed on banding day.  Perhaps M&K were, in effect, taught that a stout defence resulted in the return of their offspring!

As they say, "Thanks for the memories!"

Joyce, thank you so much!  This was a wonderful read!  So fabulous to see Cabot- Scirocco also!  (And of course, our beautiful Mariah)!
