2018 peregrine falcon season gets started:

We have several pairs of peregrines throughout Virginia that have been observed courting and are now attending eyries. Females are beginning to “house sit” and we expect the first eggs any day now. To watch the birds on the James River Bridge in real time, link to the new webcam.

Saving Places – 2017 annual report from CCB:

I suspect that nearly all of us have been struck by the lightning of wildness during some point in our lives. You may have reached out to one of the world’s great landscapes in search of solitude and it reached back to you in some completely unexpected way. You may have had a transformative encounter with some species in a vacant lot that you pass by every day. These memorable encounters with the wild are a significant part of our human experience. Our lives are somehow made more complete in the simple knowledge that such places still exist.

Saving places for bird populations is about protecting the highest functioning lands, restoring species and habitats on degraded lands, and finding ways of improving ecological function on our working lands. Addressing questions and information needs related to these activities has accounted for a great deal of the research output of The Center for Conservation Biology over the years. Saving places is the theme of the 2017 annual report for CCB.
