Nesting Peregrin Falcon Cam

Peregrin Falcon Webcam


This webcam has been developed by BioDiversity Research Institute (www.briloon.org) in Gorham, ME. It is a live feed of one of 23 nesting peregrine falcon pairs in Maine. Their system offers two perspectives of the nest from where they can monitor the nesting activities of these birds. In 2009, they successfully raised one offspring from four eggs--of which only one egg hatched--in the earliest documented nesting effort of falcons in Maine. We hope that these birds continue to use this nest sit in years to come. More information about this webcam the eaglecam and looncam and the organizations wildlife research can be found at www.briloon.org

Flowers Make It Rain

Flowers Make it RainThe Amazon rainforest—with its millions of creaking, chirping and buzzing insects, sticky frogs, vibrant birds, and unique fish—may owe its diversity primarily to flowers, said researchers from the University of Chicago. And, they say, just as flowering plants formed the building block of biodiversity in this region, their removal could result in a cascade of declining diversity.

According to authors Kevin Boyce and Jung-Eun Lee of a study published online in Proceedings of the Royal Society: Biological Sciences, if flowering plants in tropical South America were replaced with non-flowering vegetation, the rainy conditions of the forest would be reduced by 20 percent.
