Falcon cam gives sneak peek in courthouse clock tower nest

The falcon cam in the clock tower at the Wood County Courthouse is again in operation and can be viewed at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SC4IesFReGA

According to Wood County Administrator Andrew Kalmar, a pair of Peregrine Falcons are again nesting in the tower and will be joined later this spring with some new offspring. The falcon cam is offered through a partnership with Bowling Green State University.

In years past, the Ohio Department of Natural Resources would band the baby falcons in order to track their whereabouts. However, Peregrine Falcons have repopulated enough that the ODNR no longer tracks them.
